[dev] A chance for a suckless web?

Greetings comrades,

I found the AMP project [0], which seems to be a standard to have easy
rendering of webpages on mobile devices. It only allows a subset of the
HTML tags but forces at least one Javascript script file to be run. If
the content could be displayed without the JS being mandatory to decrypt
the content this would be a chance to have a more simple way of browsing
the web.

First you have an AMP browser (lynx, w3m, dillo etc. can easily handle
this subset of features) and on full HTML surf is run.

I haven’t yet mentioned the CO2 and NOX reduction that is saved by the
reduced parsing, RAM and CPU effort.

What do you comrades think?
