The problem of using Mosaic or Netscape (another shareware WWW "viewer") is 
that they require an IP connection.  So if you were to want to use it from
home, you would need to run SLIP.  That can be a whole 'nother ball of wax
depending on the kind of service you are using.  An older viewer like Lynx
is text based and can run over normal dialup lines (I think).  Feel free to
email me if you want more info (this is probably not the kind of thing that 
AtlantiaNet cares about).
