Why use a "lesser" web browser?
Why would anyone in their right mind not be using
the wonderful bells-and-whistles-laden graphical browser
you, the author, had in mind?
There are many possibilities!
- They might depend on a shell account
(or a menu-driven service) giving only text-based internet access.
- They might not have the money or inclination to get a new computer
that can support a fancy graphical browser.
- They might be using whatever is available at a library or other
- They might not be able to read a screen,
and therefore depend on a speech synthesizer to speak the output
of a text-based browser.
- They might have a graphical browser, but with images turned off
so web pages load faster.
(This especially matters over a modem.)
- They might be using a text-based browser
because they find it simpler, faster, and more reliable.
Fortunately, it's easy to make your pages accessible
to people who are interested in you and your material,
no matter what web browsers they are using.
