Mozilla Firefox
There is a native Mozilla Firefox 1.0 available for SkyOS

Mozilla Thunderbird 1.0
Use Mozilla thunderbird to manage your mail, newsgroups and RSS feeds.

Develop your own websites with the Mozilla-based Nvu Web Authoring Suite.

VNC Server and Client
Using the SkyOS VNC Server, you can remotely control your SkyOS machine from anywhere over the Internet.

With Gaim (an instant messanger) you can talk to your buddies using various protocols like Yahoo, ICQ, IRC, and MSN.

Furthermore, there are many "standard" network tools and services, such as:

  • Links (Web browser)
  • FTP
  • Telnet Server/Client
  • Ping
  • DNS support
  • DHCP Client
  • wget
  • SkIRC
  • Weather Service
  • any many more

Network sharing
You can access files on other SkyOS, Microsoft Windows and Linux machines almost as simple as you do in Microsoft Windows. Just share a folder and you can access your data over the network. This is done by using SAMBA.
