Windows console applications. Web browsers

Operating systems : Windows

Lynx : Links : ELinks

Text-based, or console web browsers are more typical for the Linux environment and other Unix-like systems. There the text-based web browsers were created, there is their main line of development. Very few (e.g., Wanna-Be / WannaBe for classic Mac OS) console web browsers were made originally for some other operating systems. And the text web browsers for Windows are the versions of console web browsers for *nix systems. Although those of them that do not work in the Cygwin environment have their little peculiarities.

In former times text-based web browsers were an important tool for viewing web documents. With the development of GUI programs further in the dial-up era, text web browsers have been useful as the fastest way to view web documents and as a part of text-to-speech systems. The spread of broadband Internet and specialized soft for text-to-speech systems cut the scope of the console web browsers. All the more, most Windows users have always had a quite vague idea of their existence. However, text web browsers are highly specialized mature tools that may be useful in various situations using Windows.

Pure CSS responsive square


Responsive CSS square. No JavaScript / jQuery. Example:   HTML / XHTML. Code: <div class="square">&nbsp;</div> CSS. Code: .square {width: 10%; height: 0; padding-bottom: 10%;} /* Extra CSS, just styling the look: */ .square {background: #fd0;} Width: 10% makes the .square div to be 10% of the parent element's width. Height: 0 eliminates any height the element may have, letting padding-bottom: 10% to make it exactly equal to the width. So each time the width of the parent container is changed, the element's size gets recalculated. Based on the concept - CSS grid with responsive square cells: Square cell 1 Square cell 2 Square cell 3 Square cell 4 Square cell 5 Square cell 6 Square cell 7 Square cell 8 [ 1 ] As well as Netscape 6.01+, Mozilla 0.6+.

Lightweight web browsers for Linux


Netsurf : Hv3 : Dillo : Links2 Nowadays the real lightweight web browsers are those without JavaScript and Flash support or with a very limited one. Because a web browser even with the lightest interface becomes heavyweight working with the modern internet crammed with scripts and multimedia. These browsers are not numerous and some of them are moving towards getting JavaScript support - i.e. towards dropping out of the "Lightweight web browsers" category. Lightweight web browsers may be more advanced - with CSS support. Or less - no CSS support or close to that. Netsurf - / home page / Currently the most advanced lightweight web browser for Linux. CSS support is quite solid. Good support of HTML. Feeble support for JavaScript - may be disabled by default. There is a version of Netsurf for *nix systems that can be run without X, using framebuffer of graphic adapter. Created initially for RISC OS and only later ported to Linux. There are also versions for other *nix systems, for AmigaOS, AmigaOS 4, Atari OS, BeOS/Haiku, Mac OS X, MorphOS.
