X Version available for this platform B binary is available for this platform S source code is available for this platform I as an interpreted script -- it can be run using a script interpreter that is normally included in this operating system
NB: that it can probably be run by any other OS provided that their is an interpreter available for that OS (which is very probable)
d currently under development ? not sure or unable to confirm/disprove a if this is under Win32, it means there is a special version for Windows NT running on an Alpha processor f this version is free $ this version must be purchased $e shareware and expires (refuses to work after so many days) OR non-registered version is crippled, until you pay for it $s shareware version that should be registered (but non-registered version has full features) ! Please see the notes for this browser: it has special operating conditions

Cross Compatability for Operating Systems
FreeBSD can run any Linux binaries as a native applications. (it will run any program binary for Linux) FreeBSD can run any SCO binaries as native applications Linux can run any SCO binaries as native applications Tck/Tk scripts will run on any UNIX box using the built in
wishinterpreter. Tcl/Tk scripts will also run on any other OS, (including Windows, Mac, OS/2, AS/400, etc.), if the
wishinterpreter is installed.
