Browse The Web Faster, Use Text Mode Browsers

Did you know that you can surf the internet in text mode using a Linux terminal? This is made possible thru free/open-source text-based web browser. But why surf the web in plain text while there are plenty of easy-to-use graphical browsers available? To answer that question, I have here a list of some of the advantages in using a text-based internet browser:

  • * Text-based web browser needs very few system resources, since displaying text needs much less processor time and memory than graphical pages.
  • * Text-based web browser runs almost everywhere, even in environments without a graphical mode. Especially the possibility to use them through Telnet can be very useful.
