I tend to agree with this take on things, and I follow a similar
philosophy of software choice.

Slight tangent, and you may have mentioned it before: What window manager
do you use?

The links browser's interface is crap, as is that of every other text
console based browser I've ever encountered.  Moving around within a
page and selecting a link are two tasks for which text console based
browsers have not provided an even halfway decent interface.  It seems as
though Web browsers provide a rare case of an application type that is
specifically suited primarily for a mouse-driven interface.
