What is a Web Browser? Well, simply an application that allows us to view the content of sites or pages available on the internet, right?
In recent times, with advances in programming or interpreted languages (HTML5, CSS3, JQuery and others) , the functions and options of these types of applications have been increased to the point that they can become Desktop Environments.
I'm sure when we talk about a Web browser minimalist, little resource consumption comes to mind, a simple interface, etc ... Applications of this type we have in GNU / Linux to choose from, from console browsers like Links2, where you can only see the content of a site through text, even a little more advanced browsers such as Midori, where we can enjoy images and other elements that make up a website, and all this using few resources.
But luckily, there is a middle ground between the previously mentioned applications. In other words, browsers that allow you to enjoy graphic, text and multimedia elements, and not consume so many resources. All this thanks to Python, Gtk and Webkit.
Here we have the first example, we just have to save this code with the name browser.py and run it in console:
In this case we can enjoy some basic options such as Refresh the page, Go forward or backward and see the loading bar. But if we want something even simpler, we have this other example written by Daniel Fuentes B, whose code can be downloaded from here.
What do you think? For those who want to do without add-ons and have their browser run at the moment
