    @seirdy@pleroma.envs.net (non-js link). It's part of the envs.net tilde. Been thinking of making my own site a Fedi and xmpp instance so I could be seirdy@seirdy.one for email, fedi, and xmpp.

    I'd previously stumbled upon that article, but decided not to include it since it focused on too many variables and took a less extreme approach (A 1-kg black hole? That's it?). This was before I added a "further reading" section.

    Most "lightweight" browsers use a heavy engine like Blink, Webkit, or Gecko. Of these three. Webkit is the lightest.

    Lightweight browsers that use an actual lightweight engine:

    • Netsurf: limited and experimental support for JavaScript, but otherwise renders quite well.

    • Dillo: very limited support for CSS, passable support for HTML5. No JavaScript.

    • Konqueror with KHTML: KHTML isn't packaged for as many distros anymore, and is the ancestor to Webkit. Very poor JS support, but decent support for HTML/CSS. Can switch to QtWebengine (based on Blink) for sites that break in KHTML.

    • Links: has a graphical mode with -g. No support for CSS, poor text rendering.

    • hv3: uses tkhtml. I haven't used this one, but it seems slightly better than KHTML.

    Edit: also, obligatory "f1rst p0st!!1"
