    I think the crux of the issue should not be just about diversifying the market share. The more important factor is that web standards are basically decided by large corporations especially Google which is what should be more democratic.

    The process of Chrome dominating the browser ecosystem is more top-down than people give it credit for. No other organization or corporation can compete with Google because of ridiculous amount of capital they have. They will be playing catch-up with the web standards that Google will be implement better since they decided what they are anyways.

      Links (use -g for graphical mode) is hands down the fastest web browser I’ve ever used, which makes a huge difference for computers with less memory.

        yes it seriously rocks. going straight to the point, eliminating most of the cruft of “modern” web. i am always surprised by how well rendered, how usable are pages in links…

        and websites that don’t render well in links? well it usually means they rely on shit technology i dont want to use anyways…

      With servo, it is pretty much a dead product at this point. It was primarily a research project in Mozilla, and with some recent pruning that Mozilla has done that leaves Servo inactive. It does still live on in Firefox as Firefox slowly migrates various components to Rust.

      At this point, it is nearly impossible to write a from scratch engine from what I have heard. The number of standards and idiosyncrasies are too immense for it to be economical. Sure you can pass this test or that, but getting it to work on all sites is going to be much harder.

      It would be prudent to mention these are Gemini protocol browsers, and don’t support HTTP. Great programs though, I use them too.

    I work on galacteek, a P2P browser that uses IPFS and RDF extensively and supports ENS.

        IPFS: Interplanetary FileSystem. It’s a peer-to-peer filesystem and much more

        RDF (Resource Description Framework): a standard model for data interchange on the Web. It’s a linked-data format that uses triples (subject-predicate-object).

        ENS: Ethereum Name Service. It’s a domain name system that lives on the Ethereum blockchain, it’s like DNS on the blockchain.

    NetSurf is pretty good if you can sacrifice uBlock Origin and instead block tracking and ads at system HOSTS level. Without JS it becomes a comically lean experience.
