Web browsers for DOS

Operating systems : MS-DOS 6.0+, FreeDOS 1.0+

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. The capabilities of the text-based web browsers for DOS differ less from the ones of text-based web browsers for other operating systems.

CSS horizontal and vertical centering - 1

 

Centering the content of a web page in the viewable area of a browser by means of CSS. A box to contain the whole content of the page is CSS centered horizontally and vertically: [ Open demo page ] HTML / XHTML. Code: <!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <title>CSS horizontal and vertical centering - 1</title> <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="css.css" /> </head> <body> <div class="all"> <div class="wrapper"> <div class="pagecontent">&nbsp;</div> </div> </div> </body> </html> CSS. Code: html {height: 100%; margin: 0px;} body height: 100%; margin: 0px;} .all {position: relative; left: 0px; top: 0px; height: 100%; width: 100%; float: left; display: table;} .wrapper {position: relative; left: 0px; top: 0px; height: auto; width: 100%; display: table-cell; vertical-align: middle;} .pagecontent {position: relative; left: 0px; top: 0px; height: 500px; width: 800px; margin: 0 auto; background: #ff6f6f;} The .pagecontent box is for the page content. It may be of height assigned explicitly or just "height: auto". Unlike CSS horizontal and vertical centering - 2, here percents may also be used as CSS units; not just px's or em's. Height and width may be larger than web browser viewable area, but here the more practical case is discussed - when the height and width of .pagecontent are smaller than those of the web browser viewable area. The .pagecontent box is horizontally centered by its "margin: 0 auto". .All with its CSS properties makes the whole web browser viewable area into a CSS table. CSS properties makes .wrapper into the cell of this CSS table. The content of this CSS table cell - the .pagecontent box with everything inside it - is vertically centered in the viewable area of a browser by "vertical-align: middle".

Selecting all in mc

 

Selecting all files and folders in a directory viewed in a panel of Midnight Commander. Achieving the same effect a does Ctrl - A under Microsoft Windows or Cmd - A in Mac OS X: Open a directory --> Ctrl - Shift - = --> Enter * [asterisk] --> Enter A directory with files and folders Selection options prompt Entering * [asterisk] All files and folders has been selected The keyboard shortcut of Ctrl - Shift - = is meant to type plus symbol. So just Shift - = may also happen to be enough. The "Using shell patterns" option in selection options prompt has to be checked on in order to make asterisk to work as the symbol for "all" or "any".
