• How and why I (attempt to) use Links as main browser

    From OSnews@21:1/5 to All on Sun Jul 26 21:38:30 2020
    Many browsers today are gigantic resource hogs, which are basically VMs for various web applications. On the other hand, Links is a HTML browser. It is not able to do everything. It allows me to avoid most distractions and control the content-experience.
    The goal of this exercise is not to force anyone to use this browser, but just to be watchful and conscious of their hypertext based internet usage (one might use gopher, and this phlog is available there, but probability tells me that a person reading
    this reads this from hypertext source and I am sure they are lovely).

    This takes some dedication, and while I wouldn';t take it quite this far, the author does make a good point.
