Hi Alejandro - nice to hear from you again.
DOS hardly needs all that memory! 
Have you tried Arachne at gmail?

elinks (with ssl) lets me sign in and read my mail.

netrik does not - cannot handle https, it says.  Nor does retawq.

I compiled and posted w3m versions 0.2.1, 0.4.2, 0.5.2, did not try them. 
The latest stable version 0.5.3 is from 2011.  Project is still in 
progress.  Does tables and cookies, 'authentication', but not javascript.

Dillo 0.8.6 (latest version I could compile, uses GTK 1.2) lets me fill in 
login and password but then nothing happens.

Dillo 2.0 (in puppy linux) gives me a page with a space for password but 
not for login.  FLTK-based - would not compile for me with BL2 for some 
reason I forget.  Current version is 3.03.

Does GTK 2 (for Firefox newer than 2, Seamonkey 2) require kernel 2.6, or 
a newer glibc that requires kernel 2.6?  There was some reason BL2 could 
not handle GTK2.  Opera 10 needed newer glibc than 2.3.6.  Opera 12.10 +
needs glibc 2.8.  Opera is abandoning linux.
