Looks like your audience has high technical pawareness. Still, I feel,
one can't emphasize enough how insane the web has become.

For example, consider the mere fact http is called http. The first /t/
in it is for text. Now it is used to embed and transfer whatnots. Worse:
often, where could and should be text, the text is obfuscated in binary

That said, suckless web browser is an oxymoron: it sucks either at
design or at the amount of content accessible.

Surf is a particular trade-off of what is worth caring about and giving
the user interface to. Uzbl is another one, w3m another one, dillo,
netsurf, etc.

Surf is a sane interface to a web and web-viewer that do inevitably
suck big time.
