ouch....I just saw while scanning TecMint....
" Browsh - A Modern Text Browser That Plays Videos And Everything".  I'm thinking the "everything" was a typo and should read "Browsh - A Modern Text Browser That Plays Videos And Makes Your Eyes Cross And Leaves You With A Headache!!!"

"Do you begin to see, then, what kind of world we are creating? It is the exact opposite of the stupid hedonistic Utopias that the old reformers imagined. A world of fear and treachery and torment, a world of trampling and being trampled upon, a world which will grow not less but more merciless as it refines itself. Progress in our world will be progress toward more pain." -George Orwell, 1984

When I was doing BasicLinux on my Toshiba, I had DRDos on the other part of the HD.....I used to use Arachne as my browser.  Supposedly they have a Linux version but I could never get it to work.

Arachne had way better graphics....  I would love to figure out how to get online with arachne using dosbox.....back in the day I was using a dialup modem but now that I'm using wifi I wouldn't know where to begin.  Seeing it again in dosbox just now gave me goose bumps!
UPDATE
I just found this:

I think I'll just stick to the fond memories I have of running Arachne back in the day...

good call. never meet your heroes :)
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. ~C. S. Lewis
