Cello: An Internet Browser from the Legal Information Institute

Welcome to the Cello Internet Browser

This is version 1.01a, March 16 1994

What Cello is and does

Cello is a multipurpose Internet browser which allows access to
the myriad information resources of the Internet. It supports
WorldWideWeb, Gopher, FTP, CSO/ph/qi, and Usenet News
retrievals natively, and other protocols (WAIS, Hytelnet,
Telnet, and TN3270) through external clients and public
gateways. It can be used to view hypermedia documents,
including inlined images, text, and digital sounds and movies.
Cello was developed by Thomas R. Bruce of the HREF="">Legal Information
at Cornell Law School.

Please take a look at the online help section called "a
tour of Cello" if you're not familiar with hypertext applications.
