Ask HN: Is there a minimal browser like uzbl that is up-to-date?

Source: Hacker News

Article note: The lack of lightweight browsers is because Web tech is a Grey's Law “Any sufficiently advanced incompetence is indistinguishable from malice.” situation. Is it just shortsighted complexity fetishists shitting their nest? Is it a concerted effort by google to make the standards so wretched no one else can implement them? Is it a horrible industry-wide conspiracy to sell hardware even though nothing about how we use computers has improved meaningfully in over a decade? I'd love to see a massive reel-back on web tech. Less-to-no client side code. More separate-content-and-presentation so we aren't all getting fucked around by 'design' like the original dream. At least CPU time limits for background code.
