Hi folks, is anyone here aware of any of the standard web browsers which were available in the System 7/8 era, which either have no SSL support at all, or have the ability to entirely disable it?
My thread on WebOne died back with the data loss the forum suffered BUT you can get modern SSL to work with netscape 3.x and iCab! Check this out:Because modern SSL/TLS just isn't compatible with legacy SSL, and I'd rather have a browser that just failed to make connections to SSL-only websites.
Haven't tried in a while, so this might be inaccurate, but I do believe when it tries to establish an SSL connection to a modern TLS-protected website, it'll sit around doing effectively nothing for longer as it desperately tries to connect, than if you'd disable SSL altogether and it fails immediately.But if you connect to any modern and incompatible server with old SSL enabled, the connection will just fail. It is the same as disabling SSL from the start so why bother?
