How is "headless chrome" (puppeteer) not just a worse version of lynx?
lynx is the only good browser.
Good things about lynx include:
* It's the most accessible browser and works very well with screen readers.
* You can run it in a terminal.
* No mouse, no problem.
* Low overhead.
* Not linked to crashing my computer.
* Minimal memory leaks
* Automatable - if a wifi hotspot wants regular logins via a browser, you can put it on a chron job.
* It has a limited scope of what it tries to do and does those things well.
@celesteh When someone here used lynx to look at our website, we found some mysterious links that are not visible in any other browser.
Thanks for reminding me again of why I wanted to go back to using lynx more often again now.
@celesteh not gonna lie, I miss gnu social. And I'm not surprised that mastodon doesn't work in lynx. I am disappointed, though.
I ran a gnu social instance. I wish they'd made a plugin for activitypub, but instead it was replaced by pleroma. Small, lighweight, easy to deploy, blocked on sight by many mastodon servers, because eco communist gay furries demand extremely highly-specced servers....
@paul I don't know what brutaldon is, but I'm not interested in deploying the mastodon server, as it's inexplicably gigantic.
We are a Mastodon instance for LGBT+ and allies! ☺
