Who needs web browsers anyway. Just curl that shit and interpret it in your head, it's not that hard

This is a shitpost but there's probably an extreme fossbro at suckless or plan9 who legitimately thinks that

@Siphonay ah, not quite (at least not usually)

I generally do not connect to web sites from my own machine, aside from a few sites I have some special relationship with. I usually fetch web pages from other sites by sending mail to a program (see git.savannah.gnu.org/git/womb/) that fetches them, much like wget, and then mails them back to me. Then I look at them using a web browser, unless it is easy to see the text in the HTML page directly. I usually try lynx first, then a graphical browser if the page needs it (using konqueror, which won't fetch from other sites in such a situation).
