Description[edit]

Sometimes known as Netcapsule or simply "Oldweb". Netcapsule is a proof-of-concept system for browsing old web sites from existing web archives in old browsers, inside a modern browser. When the Netcapsule web page is loaded, the old browser is loaded in an emulator-like setup (Docker container) connecting to an existing archiving service through an HTTP/S proxy
