Yes, ffcast is better for you then. I actually prefer a smaller
screen, or maybe I've been using Thinkpads for so long. My iphone will
soon eclipse this shitty hardware that Lenovo makes in every way.

Not sure, I prefer asynchronous anyway.

Probably not for the suckless peeps, but I like to show the
interaction between my terminal and the browser. However I would like
to produce videos where copying & pasting text from the video was
possible, so perhaps the scripts & video can be married?
