A fully-modern text-based browser, rendering to TTY and browsers https://github.com/browsh-org/browsh
I used to love Lynx -- this looks interesting
Lynx fetched & rendered ONLY text components, & had commands & hooks to fetch/render graphics if you wanted them.
browsh fetches everything & renders to (color or mono) character display -- so it appears to me you get all the performance drawbacks of fetching graphics AND THEN passing them through an unnatural rendering computation, only to get bad graphics.
I could be wrong -- browsh's site claims lower network utilization because of the text focus -- but
(a) it does display low-quality graphics,
(b) it needs to talk to a browser to do SOMETHING, and
(c) it's slow as heck to load/render www.quantamagazine.com.
@Branford I can't see too much practical use for it, presumably you could configure something like uBlock on top of FF to block graphics entirely though.
