I feel like we're having this conversation all the time, but what's the least broken non-webkit browser other than FF?

@ajroach42 @letthewatersroar I mean there's always Opera 12

but the real answer is probably Edge if you want modern functionality (for now, then it's IE11 once Edge goes Chromium)

@ajroach42 I'm surprised if there's anything more modern than dillo that isn't either WebKit, Blink, or Gecko. Oh, I guess the last pre-Blink versions of Edge will technically satisfy your question.

@ajroach42 This seems like my quest to find a calendar app for a desktop or Android phone. It's like everyone gave up developing anything once Googs moved into the space.

It's not impossible, but damn near.

@sikkdays @ajroach42 Business Calendar 2 works extremely well for me on Android. Can't think of anything for desktop, though.

@ajroach42 well you said non-webkit browser. tor is based on firefox but isn't firefox itself...

I said not webkit and not Firefox.

You gave me Firefox filtered through Tor devs.

Tor browser has it's place, but it doesn't meet my requirements at this time.

Links 2 has had a graphical mode for ages, but I was unaware of one for standard links.

@ajroach42 Palemoon and Basilisk use the Goanna engine. Goanna is a fork of gecko though.

@blaubachn Palemoon is a name I've heard before but haven't ever looked in to. I'll check it out.

@ajroach42 #Palemoon is a fork of #Firefox. It is more distant than #Tor-browser, but still based on what was originally #Mozilla's code.

@lnxw48a1 Yep.

I'll take a look at it and see what the performance is like on my salvaged thin client, and go from there. It'll probably be too beefy for regular use. I imagine I'm going to get stuck with netsurf or dillo.

@ajroach42 I'm using #waterfox ... it isn't a perfect replacement yet, since some of the newer #firefox features haven't made it over, but the critical addons are there, all of the objectionable FF features are ommitted, and its generally "good enough".

@ajroach42 @StephenLB It's not so much browsers that are broken as the web. If you stick to sites that work well in w3m, you're sticking to the least broken parts of the web, which makes w3m the (least broken web) browser vs the (least broken) (web browser).

That's more or less the ideal I'm reaching for. I was hoping for a graphical browser, but w3m does have image support iirc.

@ajroach42 Last I checked it did, though IIRC it relies on an xterm extension and X11, and I have no idea if it works properly over ssh, even with forwarded X.

Links and netsurf can do images over x or framebuffer, but netsurf is ... Quirky and I think that links didn't render html as well as w3m last time I compared them

I'll try them both and see if either can make it for what I'm trying to do.
