Cameron Kaiser is still working on HyperLink, AFAIK. However, that doesn't
run on 'stock' C64s, and requires an ISP with a shell-account. Still, I 
think that this is the only way to go, if you want to be able to run a
browser on a C64 (Have a program on your ISP do the low-level work of setting
up network connections, and buffering the whole lot). The ISP might
be the biggest problem though - only very few providers seem to be 
having a login shell. Unfortunately, this includes HCCnet :(

Web browser for Wheels, IIRC.

Cramming a HTML-parser into 64K is quite a job. Adding a full TCP/IP stack 
won't fit.
