People are full speed ahead on HTML5 largely because the <video>
keyword will theoretically let you stream video without needing Flash.
(You'll still be\need a codec, but that will be part of the browser,
not a third-party plugin.)

I use the Dillo browser in Linux, and Dillo doesn't support
JavaScript.  (There are longer term plans for it to do so, but they
need to do extensive DOM support first.)  In Linux, I use Dillo as a
browser for local HTML files, where JavaScript is not a requirement.
For web browsing, I use Firefox.

I don't currently try to use a browser in DOS.  Since I have a 100mbit
broadband connection, and systems running Windows, Linux, and Android
that can connect through it, there is no need for or point to trying
to connect from DOS, and I don't bother.
