Lightweight web browsers for Linux
Operating systems : Linux
Lightweight web browsers may be more advanced - with CSS support. Or less - no CSS support or close to that.
NetSurf 3.0 on PuppyLinux 5.2.8:
Partial, improving with newer versions, CSS support. Moderately good HTML support. Fast, faster is only Links2. Various versions of Dillo work in Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OS X and other *nix systems, RISC OS, on some PDAs and SONY PlayStation2. There are ports to DOS and Windows.
Besides the aforementioned ones, there is one more lightweight web browser - Mosaic-CK. But its Linux version is experimental and requires to have additional software installed, which may prove to be troublesome or impossible in some distributions.

Unzip multiple zip files into one directory by Linux command line unzip. Contrary to possible expectations, "unzip *.zip" is not going to work, *.zip should be put into quotes: unzip "*.zip" There may be files with the same names in these archives. To avoid overwriting: unzip -B "*.zip" "Unzip -B" makes unzip to overwrite duplicates during extraction process, but saving a backup copy of each overwritten file. The names for these backup copy files are created by adding tilde ("~") at the end of the original names of the files. If a file extension is present, then "~" is added after it. If that is not enough, unique sequence number (up to 5 digits) is appended after the "~". "Unzip -B" is not too practical. For example, since when the sequence number range for numbered backup files gets exhausted (99999, or 65535 for 16-bit systems), the backup file with the maximum sequence number is deleted and replaced by the new backup version without notice ( More on the subject ). The number of files in an archive may not be always known in advance or may be more than possible sequence number range, so "Unzip -B" is not a great choice. Renaming duplicate files by adding "~" at the end of their names, after the extension, is not too convenient either. But another built-in option is even worse. If the "-B" modifier is not used, each time a file with same name as there already unpacked is being extracted, unzip asks "replace example.txt? [y]es, [n]o, [A]ll, [N]one, [r]ename:". And each time "r" must be hit, then a new name has to be input. So some bash or another script solving the problem should probably be prepared and used instead.
Arachne : Dillo : DOSLYNX : Lynx : Links : ELinks Web browsers for DOS may be looked at as existing roughly in two categories. Web browsers which can be installed without excessive efforts + work stably within their capability. And the rest of the web browsers of functionality more or less limited or problematic. The major web browsers for DOS include applications with GUI and text-based browsers. The graphical web browsers for DOS are several versions of Arachne - GPL version, Arachne Labs version, Ray Andrews version - and Dillo. As well as DR-WebSpyder based on Arachne and WebSpyder's variation - Lineo Embrowser. Text-based web browsers for DOS are a little bit more numerous: DOSLYNX, lynx, links, elinks. The graphical web browsers for DOS even if being prominent among DOS web browsers for their capabilities are definitely inferior in comparison with major web browsers for Windows, Linux or Mac OS X due to the restrictions of the DOS nature, small user and developer base, some other reasons.
