switching to the cli for my recreational web browsing has been extremely effective in separating signal from noise


for example, my experience of reddit has been completely transformed by the rtv terminal client.

There is no distracting /r/all feed. Memes and images are completely filtered out since they can't be viewed in the terminal. I just type rtv -s ${insert subreddit} and browse the subs I like. I can only read text.

It finally feels like a normal forum software instead of a bizarre internet hivemind full of ads and memes.

@aadil I like rtv a lot, I use it (as well as haxor-news) from time to time.

@dfr same here, been using use those two a lot lately. ddgr (for duckduckgo) and the links browser are also pretty nice when used together :)
