There aren't any that work like Internet Explorer, thankfully. Instead there is Firefox, which is standards-compliant and superior to IE in every imaginable way. Firefox is available for Windows, too, so even your toy computers can benefit from it!

Yes, of course. That's what you asked, wasn't it?

Konqueror, the KDE browser, supports these things too. So does Opera. There are probably others I'm not even thinking of. You can't really call yourself a Web browser in 2005 without supporting these things! And as I said, pretty much any browser supports them all better than IE does.

Kinda, sorta sounds like you've formed an opinion.

links and elinks don't support javascript - do they?
I don't know about dhtml...?

@venkatesh:
links and elinks even don't support images (while elinks supports colorized text), but they are meant for doing serious work in text-mode, like reading documentations.
You shouldn't bother about that.
