not everything - each of the browsers I use has problems with different
sites. For instance none of IE/NS/Opera was able to navigate to a download
URL for a patch that one of the Linux i18n groups had for xterm. I used
lynx for that (and experimented with w3m/links, but they didn't get as
far as Opera - ugly site, I admit).
