if you don’t mind one level of indirection,
you could browse sites thru FrogFind
	http://frogfind.com/ <http://frogfind.com/>

FrogFind is optimized for vintage computers and browsers,
-- including the Newton!! -- by converting the search result pages to extremely basic HTML,
using Mozilla's Readability and other techniques.

in particular, this lets you access https: sites too (though insecurely).
and since it’s powered by DuckDuckGo, you’ll have more privacy.

besides entering search words, you can just enter a URL.
for example, I entered my own site (communicrossings.com <http://communicrossings.com/>)
and FrogFind returns a plain http: page

I mention FrogFind & older HTML transcoders on:

p.s. plus, a frog is an aquatic newt cousin!
