But installing urlview does not guarantee that any browser is installed
at all. Even
~> apt-cache show urlview | grep -i recommends
urlview uses such kind of virtual package - even if I think it is
a bug that it only Recommends and not "Depends".
But thanks for the hint. While looking at the great NMU of Joey Hess
(urlview_0.9-2.2) all my questions are answered. I must have sleeped
when the new Debian browser policy was announced. I guess all my
wishes are fullfilled now.
Kind regards and thanks for the hint
