Hm, but, tbh, I’m not. I absolutely hate Firef*x but there are
certain “web applications” that require it. Also, things like
geographic applications (geocaching, geodashing, geovexilla,
geohashing, shutterspot, munzee, …) don’t make sense in lynx.
I still try to use it as few as possible.

Sometimes they [people] care too much: pretty printers [and syntax highligh-
ting, d.A.] mechanically produce pretty output that accentuates irrelevant
detail in the program, which is as sensible as putting all the prepositions
in English text in bold font.	-- Rob Pike in "Notes on Programming in C"
