I saw this on hacker news.

It's a python script that uses webkit to render modern sites to PNG to allow old browsers to browse new sites. I'm gonna give it a try on my openstep asap. One of the examples on the link above uses omniweb.

Tried this yesterday, took 70 seconds to load CNN on a turbo slab. Pre converting to b&w helps, but not enough. Maybe nxhost to an emulated machine?
