Tmux console web browsing – Going from Elinks to w3m on MacOS
I’ve stubbornly hung on to Elinks, although important documentation sites like Tailwindcss and Mozilla Developer Network stopped working in Elinks because of SSL errors.
I earnestly tried but in the end I couldn’t get the Elink’s SSL patch compiled on MacOS High Sierra.
I then looked around and settled on w3m https://w3m.sourceforge.net, which is installed without a hiccup on MacOS via a ‘brew install w3m’.
