I don't know if there are any "recommended" binaries for Win9x. You
have a choice of three publically available binaries. As far as I
know, none of them have SSL support. The alternative is to compile
your own binary (with SSL support, if you choose). Hiroyuki Senshu's
binary generally has changes which have not yet made it to the
mainstream source code. The binaries are likely made with different
choices of compile options. I would recommend compiling your own copy,
with the options you prefer. If you can't do that, try the different
binaries and see which works best for you. The third binary is that by
Wayne Buttles at "";. Lynx can
be compiled on Win9x using only free tools. I compile it with Cygwin.
I believe it also compiles with Mingw32 and with the usual commercial

There is one other option, only rarely used. You can use the DOS DJGPP
binary from my web site (which has SSL support). It can run in a DOS
box under Win98, but only if you install the ndis3pkt virtual packet
driver. I have used this over a network connection to a DSL line. I
have not tried it for a dialup connection, but it might work. It might
be just as easy, however, to just compile your own Win9x binary.
