  • Browsh

    Not all the world has good Internet. If all you have is a 3kbps connection tethered from a phone then it's good to SSH into a server and browse the web through, say, elinks. That way the server downloads the web pages and uses the limited bandwidth of an SSH connection to display the result. But traditional text-based browsers lack JS support and all that other modern HTML5 goodness.
