Unicode Support in Other Browsers

AOL

AOL 4.0 and 5.0, 6.0, and 7.0 integrate versions of Internet Explorer that do support Unicode; the example texts were viewable in AOL 5.0 (last version tested). AOL 8.0 reportedly may use Gecko, the rendering engine in Mozilla.

Enigma and Other "Browsers" Using Internet Explorer as a Rendering Engine

Enigma seems to be a web-browser incorporating the Windows web rendering component that's used in Internet Explorer, so for all practical purposes, it should be treated as Internet Explorer. NeoPlanet is really nothing more than a front end for Internet Explorer.

Galeon and Other Browsers Using Mozilla Gecko as a Rendering Engine

Galeon, K-Meleon, and Chimera are browsers using the Gecko rendering engine from Mozilla; their Unicode support should be the same as Mozilla's.

NetPositive (BeOS)

Charon (BeOS)

Finally, I imagine that Charon, the web browser component of Plan 9, supports Unicode; but I haven't actually met anyone who has used Plan 9.

Widely-Used Browsers without Support for Unicode

Here's a screenshot in a non-Unicode browser: Sun's HotJava (which shares most of its code with Netscape 3.0, but works using a Java Virtual Machine) in Windows 98: GIF.

iCab

iCab is a browser written for the Apple Macintosh operating systems.

Lynx

The popular text browser, Lynx, supposedly supports Unicode, but I haven't been able to get it to work yet.

Mosaic

Mosaic (which is obsolete) provides no support for Unicode.

HotJava

HotJava

Netscape 3

Netscape 3 (which is obsolete) has no support for Unicode. Most computers capable of running Netscape 3 are also capable of running Netscape 4, which supports Unicode in Windows 95, 98, ME, NT4, 2000, and XP.

Computers with more than 128MB of memory and a processor speed of 233 MHz and faster can run Netscape 6 or Mozilla; on Windows 95, 98, ME, NT4, 2000, and XP and in Linux distributions with XFree86 4.0, Netscape 6 and Mozilla provide the necessary Unicode support for polytonic Greek.
