For us Zaurus users, no matter what distro used, this is a great browser!


It features full Javascript support, even Firefox plugins work. You can watch Youtube ..

To clarify before you ask - No, the Zaurus does not need to run Firefox head-less for this to work. ( I would not recommend even trying )

Instead, just run the docker instance as mentioned on brow.sh on a x86 or ARMv6 computer locally or even host it in the cloud.
Then use ssh to browse via brow.sh remotely ! Or try the live free ssh access provided by brow.sh as mentioned at the end of this post.

Note: Currently there is no keyboard only navigation support. You need a mouse.
You can load custom pages by pressing CTRL+L and entering a page URL.
Scrolling works too, but not interaction with pages.

This is a feature that is being worked on and we hopefully see VIM like key-bindings, soon.

How does it look like ?


(Void Linux on Zaurus, tmux, busybox sh, dropbear ssh client)

Want to try it without installing anything ? Just use the free ssh access from brow.sh to get a taste ! Just run:

ssh brow.sh
