Many sites have switched from http to https protocol, which requires SSL as part of the TCP/IP stack. The Newton Internet Enabler does not currently support SSL, so those site will not load in any Newton OS browser.

That being said, neither Eckhart's site nor SourceForge use https and are accessible using both Courier and Newt's Cape. I can't speak for NetHopper.

You can try downloading an non-zipped version of the patch pkg from Ken Greek's site:
