Yes, it works. I thought that it was an inbetween browser. Not light like dillo or w3m, but not real functional like Firefox, Palemmon, Midori etc. As I recall that's WebKit2/GTK+. Not sure if it is maintained.

If you are looking at that then also look at netsurf and surfraw.

falkon does not seem to run but fails to find a libnss3.so library it wants
that comes with the NSS from mozilla...
So one is back to mozilla again.
Vivaldi is running ok.
Chromium works too.

Many other things on Slackware depends on libnss3.so

true enough.

Curiously it is much like the old internet explorer/netscape controversy, that windows would not actually function or run properly without IE
such that if you tracked IE down and killed it, windows was dead. Similarly the Mozilloids (children of netscape) have
similarly embedded their code in the foss world it seems. Just musing the irony.

Does anyone happen to already know some of the various things which "libnss3.so" does?

FWIW, palemoon browser is a 'pre-artemis' fork of firefox. It went back to firefox-25, before firefox started messing with "faster" programming languages that actually slowed the browser down. Then it worked forward in C/C++, afaik.

It has it's own libnss3.so, and palemoon releases source. So you can inspect libnss3.so source, copy it to your distribution, release it separately if you want, etc.
