The main difference seems to be that enterprise has custom branding and is ad-free.
On the other hand, Bing recently released a completely updated version of their paid search API. So on the plus side it looks like they aren't ready to give up on custom search yet. On the downside, they've tripled their prices.

edit 2: Here's a HP B-series PA-RISC from my closet running actual vintage NS-4, also no, http://i.imgur.com/tt7AYqj.png (the top window is a search for the term "cat")
Google however, almost still works http://i.imgur.com/kdTd1AU.png ... I give them an A. hn and kernel.org get a security algorithm error, reddit gets an i/o error as does craigslist and yahoo. wiki.c2.com has a perpetual spinner. netbsd here makes me sad to be such a fanboy: http://i.imgur.com/RxedDF6.png
http://gnu.org is totally acceptable, even in Netscape 3! http://i.imgur.com/RImHQjM.png
http://fsf.org errors at an appropriate place: http://i.imgur.com/g8TF8Uc.png but after that is usable.
http://berkshirehathaway.com loads perfectly and looks the same.
I'm mildly curious what would happen if you tried to build NetSurf on that thing. It compiles for AmigaOS and RISC OS...
H3:54/raid/hp/netsurf-all-3.6$ gmake --version
GNU Make 3.80
H3:55/raid/hp/netsurf-all-3.6$ /usr/local/bin/gcc --version

Looks like some serious effort. To put things in context, I can't do remote X to a modern machine as in
$ DISPLAY=desktop:0 xterm&
This gives a protocol error. So instead I'm running it all through a vncserver, which uses a more legacy protocol.
I've tried things like
$ Xnest -query hp :1
but I get the classic CDE hour glass, a black screen, and nothing more.
It's honestly nice to pull this thing out of the closet just to remember how unfriendly things used to be. You type a command and realize "well gee, this thing doesn't have that. Alright, here's a more painful way..." You don't even get things like arrow keys and backspace for free. Gotta stty them.
To be completely fair, building NetSurf may simply not be possible with the toolchain the machine has - I was maybe-1/3-joking about trying it :P - but it would be an awesome challenge to see if it could be done. I suspect it may just be possible.
I emailed you.
"$ DISPLAY=desktop:0 xterm&
Ok, I'm impressed. That's the first time I've seen that.
That would explain it.
I remember tinkering with Flash back in the day, even before it was Adobe.
I guess it'll stay up as long as it generates revenue via ads. Its still someone's homepage I suspect. The elderly still using AOL perhaps?
Also I've long wanted an HTTP caching mechanism that permits cross origin caching, so people aren't redownloading the same dependencies. Essentially the server responds with a digest and if the browser has a match from any domain, it forgoes the download.
Is there a hard to trigger collision attack possible? Sure but I don't care.

I'm going to start a new trend in web design. I'll call it 56k design.
That was pretty much my criteria when I was making forum software: https://www.lfgss.com/
It's still too heavy and slow, and there's still some things I could do better. But that's nitpicking, it's pretty good and when I finish re-structuring all of the code it will be a single binary install for those who want to use it, or a split-binary Web-UI + API for those who want to only do certain parts (i.e. customise and host the front-end and not care about the back-end, or to scale the background for heavy mobile use without that being serving front-end traffic).
My goals for that software in the next few months:
1. Same-origin everything
4. Single codebase, single binary install from a single `go install` command
And to think they had the opportunity to buy Google for 750K after Vinod talked Page and Brin down from 1MM
Besides, hiding ads is not the same as preventing ads from being loaded.
Enterprise and government customers are often concerned about data leaking out through advertisement networks, and hosted ad services are not uncommonly used to inject malware into specific sites. Hiding ads using CSS would not prevent these problems.
