Windows 95 Internet Tools

by Adam C. Engst

Windows 95 Internet Tools -- I implied in the Cyberdog article in TidBITS-277 that Windows 95 wouldn't come with Internet tools. That's sort of true - the latest word is that the Microsoft Plus Pack will contain the Web browser, the SMTP/POP extensions for Microsoft Exchange, extensions that map Windows 95 Shortcuts (they're like hard-coded aliases) to URLs, and a setup wizard. These tools will also be available for downloading, apparently. However, the TCP stack, the PPP dialer, and FTP and Telnet clients will ship with the base Windows 95 configuration. Or at least that's the plan now - it may change yet again. [ACE]
