Old Stuff Forever

March 3rd, 2010 gergo Comments off

I just read a quite interesting article full with pictures, that blow my mind. What can take 5 or 10 second to load a page. That was the last kick to try lynx.
First of all I checked it, maybe I already have it, so just type lynx, and I got:

The program ‘lynx’ can be found in the following packages:
* lynx-cur
* lynx-cur-wrapper
Try: sudo apt-get install
lynx: command not found

That’s the spirit that I like, respect for the parents. So after 5 minutes I have been a happy user of lynx.
The first test was the article itself:

$ lynx

and I got my first suprise: cookie: PHPSESSIDv2=3fc04fea2eef22ad919e54d9b45e3066 Allow? (Y/N/Always/neVer)

then just put a v and you are out of the watching eyes of the big brother, free like at the dawn of the net. After it an another cookie try to watch my activity but I just laugh in her face.

Of course there are dark sides of lynx: in case of Hungarian text the accents can cause some ugly stuff. But this is my own problem to stick to my mother language. So guys if want to break down your monitor because of slow internet I can say there are other options.
