In these cases, one possibility is to install the entire Windows 98 system in a computer emulator, such as PCem and 86Box, but, like Virtual Machines it is also a big learning curve, but here's the tip in case you ever need it.

Why use old computers and operating systems?
5 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 20 Mar 2021
For others who love old software and hardware I'll share two of my favorite sites, an excellent retro PC emulator, 86Box  and a clean and well-maintained software archive, WinWorld .
These two sites together have provided me hours of exploration into old hardware, BIOS screens I'd never otherwise see, and plenty of interesting software scenarios.
Oh yeah, just browsing the web like it's Y2K.

The general solution I've seen has been a web rendering proxy that renders modern websites to images with clickable image maps, though that's really cheating as it's some intermediate hardware that's rendering the site.
Recently released a SSR Proxy (Server-Side Rendenring), which allows for SEO-friendly SPAs, serving pre-rendered web pages for Web Crawlers. Any feedback is more than welcome!

About the only actual server-side rendering proxy I know of is this project, but it's not going to do much for SEO.

Found something called WRP (https://github.com/tenox7/wrp) that displays modern sites as fully interactive images on old browsers. Tested it on DS and DSi browsers and it works great! It's a bit better on the DSi though. Hope this helps anyone who wants to browse the web on their DS!2 projects | reddit.com/r/nds | 14 Nov 2021

If you have a powerful machine nearby, you can use WRP for browsing modern sites on most older browsers. https://github.com/tenox7/wrp/
