I installed netsurf and tried it on some wordpress sites.  It seems to be good on those sites. But, though, as nightflier surmised, I was kidding about outlook.com, netsurf doesn't work very well on heinonline.org, a site I use a lot. So, ddval, I too will keep using netflix (and chromium).  But its great to know about netsurf.   It seems to work on some sites that dillo doesn't like.

I've tried Dillo, several times, I never got the hang of it.   Is chromium open source or google?

Chromium, in the VL7 repositories, is open source I believe.  However, it doesn't get on some sites.  Its cousin, Google Chrome, far as I know, gets on everything.  But, everything that has a front has a back and google chrome tracks you.

Iron. Because Chromium tracks you.

Chances are, there are uncaught things in Iron that leave one a bit open, but they're working on it.

Amazing!   The constant stream of valuable information that is offered.
