CLI browser: netsurf-fb - namtih - 28th Dec, 2012 12:36 AM

Like suggested here:

It's very small and doesn't need any X environment. Just start it from the command line.
No support for JavaScript or Flash yet.

sudo apt-get install netsurf-fb

For a first start please try
netsurf-fb -b 16

Try another resolution and 32bit
netsurf-fb -w 1920 -h 1080 -b 32
If it doesn't start please try "-b 16" or "-b 24".

Noticed issues:
- you don't see any blinking cursor in text field
- comparing to the documentation I couldn't find any bookmark or configuration menu
- sometimes you will get some strange characters while typing, probably any charset issue
- the options from "man netsurf-fb" seem not to work, especially "font_size" would be great to get a bigger font in the 1920x1080 resolution
- it should be possible to add an file "~/.netsurf/Choices-fb" with all wanted options, but somehow it's not reading it
