It's hard to use Dillo without a compiler, but that just makes it a bit more obscure and gives the user even more of a reason to adopt an air of superiority. Where mere mortals need to keep buying faster processors with more cores, you're able to live simply with the 486 that your grandfather passed along to your father who passed it along to you.
The Dillo Web browser takes you back to the early '90s when the words spoke to us, not the movement of the images.
Specialty Web browsers: Browse in text with Lynx Lynx works with a command line, and that alone is a miracle. All of the text and the links are arranged in the ASCII terminal window in some reasonable approximation of what a real browser would do. The images are just marked with the alternative text if there is any. (Someday someone will pass the images through an ASCII art filter, but that would be more cool than useful.)
The main reason people use Lynx is to download software while logged in remotely to a computer. People maintaining servers remotely swear by it.
The Lynx browser is strictly ASCII, with no images, for command-line junkies who must use the Web.
Specialty Web browsers: Browse smarter on Mac OS X with Cruz, Fake, and Fluid These three browsers from Todd Ditchendorf of Celestial Teapot Software are probably each worthy of an entry on their own, but they're lumped together for simplicity. All of them work only on Mac OS X and use the same core rendering engine. The value comes in the way that they package the information.
