  1. The Konqueror browser is included by default in any KDE installation.
    One thing that’s critically important is CSS2 and W3C standards support as of, say, 2005. Proprietorial ‘standards’ are too complicated and difficult to implement unless implemented via an tag.
    A full-bore emacs installation may include a text-only browser very like lynx.

  3. Pernah coba Midori dan links/elinks di Ubuntu 9.10
    Midori ringan sih, tapi sering crash terjadwal 😀 links/elinks ada di Blankon yang sedang dipakai, tapi tentu ndak bisa dipakai untuk Fesbuk-an (actually, Facebook said that links/elinks is to cool for them 😀 )
