CLI browser: netsurf-fb
Like suggested here:
https://github.com/xbianonpi/xbian/issues/167

Netsurf:
General: http://www.netsurf-browser.org/
Status: http://www.netsurf-browser.org/documentation/progress
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.

Installation
Code:
sudo apt-get install netsurf-fb

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

Try another resolution and 32bit
Code:
netsurf-fb -w 1920 -h 1080 -b 32 www.google.de
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
