In addition to LYNX and iCab, mentioned in the article,
there are other browsers that support the
LINK element. Below are
the results of my research. If you know of additional browsers, please contact
On this page:
CAB for Atari
NCSA Mosaic 3.0
Thanks to Thomas J. Gritzan there's finally LINK support in Internet Explorer! The toolbar is available in English and German and additionally provides a Pop-up blocker and direct search engine access.
Opera 7. Opera now also sports support for LINK elements. The link toolbar only shows if there are link elements present in the page.

Mozilla 1.1. In Version 1.0 the feature was deactivated, but since Version 1.1 Mozilla finally has a LINK-Toolbar, now called "Site Navigation Bar". This useful feature is disabled by default, and buried deep in the menus - it takes four mouseclicks to activate the toolbar:

The presentation of the LINK elements hasn't changed since Version 0.9.5 nicht

LINKelements: the blue double arrow in image 1.
LINKnavigation elements: Start, Inhalt (content), Index, Glossar (glossary), Vor (forward), Zurück (back), etc. This is visible in image 2. This implimentation is quite as userfriendly as in iCab.(images and information provided by Alexander Clauss, developer of CAB and iCAB).
