What browsers are there for DOS that can do https?

I can think of three: Lynx, Links and Dillo.

Many years ago, I used Doug Kaufman's DOS port of Lynx for online commerce, but 
not banking.

HTTPS and Javascript support are hard to come by in DOS.

Arachne, last release (1.97) in March 2013, never supported Javascript or 
https, meaning no practical use, or severely limited, on today's WWW.  I never 
downloaded it.
