Dillo Web Browser: Cave-Dwelling Hackers Crawling Out of the Woodwork
Discovered Dillo, a basic browser.
it's funny. Often, in the elite programing community (meaning: not your typical “i code to earn bread” but more of the “i love coding and am superior” hacker types), you often have a living-in-a-cave phenomenon. You'll often encounter programers crawling out of the woodwork, with obscure and impractical ideas. Dillo is a good example. (other examples are many emacs heads)
let's look at Dillo. So, what is it? Quote from Wikipedia.
Dillo is a minimalistic web browser particularly intended for older or slower computers and embedded systems. It supports only plain HTML/XHTML (with basic CSS rendering) and images over HTTP; scripting is ignored entirely. Dillo is available for Linux, BSD, Solaris, DOS / FreeDOS and Mac OS X. Due to its small size, it is the browser of choice in several space-conscious Linux distributions. Released under the GNU General Public License, Dillo is free software.
that's like a lol. Who will actually find it useful?
this is year 2012. Sure, there are still people on modem and using computers that's 10 years old. But first of all, how many such people exist? probably less than 1/100000 of the internet users.
