Yes, it's old.  You need Texinfo 4.0.

Why is it easier?  Info readers have the same commands for navigation
as HTML browsers do.

Info readers have much better facilities for quickliy finding the
required information.  For example, the index-search command and the
automatic completion of index items and section names.  You lose all
this if you use the HTML version of the docs.

There are better Info browsers than the stand-alone info.exe which
comes with Texinfo.  The FAQ mentions the other readers in section

If none of the Info readers is good enough for you, perhaps you could
improve one of them and submit your changes to its maintainer(s).
