Wow!
First really usable GRAPHICAL web browser for DOS. Better than Arachne! Great! Great piece of software!

To be clear - Arachne renders better but is EXTREMALY SLOW. It is the weakest ring of my DOS computer. But now I have Links. ALthough the imaging is worse it is blasingly fast.

Please, continue with the developent. The main problem now is that you can't change the screen resolution. It seems to be 640x480 so it is not very comfortable.

My bad, my browser seems to be forwarding me to /dos-stuff. Not quite sure why.

He must've fixed the link around the time of the post. Clearing my cache fixed it (I'm using Firefox 2)

Okay, I've patched pre-36, and I'll modify 640 / 480 to 800 x 600.

1024 x 768 might be best, but maeh :) this will do for a start.

What drvs/utils are needed for connecting

Could somebody help-tell me what drivers and/or utilities I need to connect to the internet in pure DOS please?
Thanks a lot in advance.

If you have a network card you have to download a DOS driver.
More info here: http://www.unet.univie.ac.at/~a0503736/php/drdoswiki/index.php?n=Main.PacketDriver

If you are connected by modem all depends if your modem full functional or if is it a softmodem (winmodem).
Full functional modems have all functions handled by hardware, softmodems have only some cheap chip which needs a special driver. In such case is very unlikely you can get a DOS driver.
First group doesn't need a driver at all (if is it ISA a card) or only some configuration tool (if is it a PCI card) and there is some chance you find some for DOS.

If you want connect via modem you also need a dialer program like DOSPPPD or LSPPP.
