Hi All,

maybe a possibility for modern web browsing using https://www.brow.sh/

Works mostly but Stuart.app and Terminal.app don't properly support true colour or ncurses. or UTF8? Can anyone with more expertise than me point me in the right direction to get this going? (Preferably on Black hardware).

There is a monochrome mode that looks much nicer than lynx, but can't follow links due to no link highlighting and no ncurses.

Are there any existing NeXT terminal emulators with this functionality?

I wonder, are there any GNUSTEP browser projects that still might run under OPENSTEP?

Hi bight,

does brow not require an installed Firefox for running properly?

Greetings

Yep. It does need Firefox. The idea is to run the terminal through an ssh session on my Mac.

Like I'm doing with terminal-slack that uses blessed and node.js.
