[NTLK] Nethopper question

I have been playing around with various browsers for the Newton. I have
tried a number of PDA friendly sites with Courier, Nethopper and Newtscape.
Courier is very quick but lacks a bookmark function from what I see.
Newtscape is the most feature rich in every respect, bookmarks display,
content handling, but all of that comes at the price of speed. Nethopper
looks like a good trade off for quick text browsing. It has a good bookmark
system and is pretty quick. But about 75% of the pages I try to open (which
open fine in Newtscape) tell me I need a plugin and points to the address
http://www.allpen.com/plugin/ www.allpen.com goes to an auction listing for
Newton stuff no matter what directory/file you add after the URL, no
plugins. So, is this a different AllPen? Does anyone out there have these
missing plugins? Is Nethopper just too out dated and I should stick to
Courier for speed or Newtscape for features?
