Asking for connectivity savers for Terminals


Here, my Chromium browser is moderately accelerated under the few ad-blockers, cache and history blockers, the data saver by Google itself etc ... however where are the ‘‘connectivity savers’’ (like ones for Chromium) optimized for Terminals? I have researched PLENTY related (REGARDLESS slightly or tightly) keywords but been given ALMOST NOTHING.

I'd say for one (carefully and after data backups of course) have a look at
Code:
cat /etc/sysctl.conf
if we knew what operating system( ie distro )...

assuming you mean net connectivity in a terminal, otherwise they have tweaks of their own?

Have fun!

Yes network connectivity done under a terminal session, and the distro are F26 and LMDE thanks? Here, how to start tweaking thanks?
Code:
[hdscania@dnf ~]$ sudo cat /etc/sysctl.conf
# sysctl settings are defined through files in
# /usr/lib/sysctl.d/, /run/sysctl.d/, and /etc/sysctl.d/.
#
# Vendors settings live in /usr/lib/sysctl.d/.
# To override a whole file, create a new file with the same in
# /etc/sysctl.d/ and put new settings there. To override
# only specific settings, add a file with a lexically later
# name in /etc/sysctl.d/ and put new settings there.
#
# For more information, see sysctl.conf(5) and sysctl.d(5).
[hdscania@dnf ~]$ cd /usr/lib/sysctl.d

Another more (like we) s—friendly suggestion: speeding up net connection in linux

seems the command line (CLI) is our whole system...

Here, I must NOT be a , and I have confirmed which Chromium has been ‘‘biting’’ my data too much, so I have now tried few lightweight browsers,
Code:
# dnf install -y tor midori qupzilla --nogpgcheck
But under Tor I have been experiencing a froze,
Code:
bash-4.4$ sudo dnf reinstall -y --nogpgcheck tor && tor

Finally, I have been researching for few Google related extensions for Midori and Qupzilla.

Tor will slow things down due to encryption. Do you need a GUI? Links2 is cool or other CLI ones...

It seems ... NO extensions could be plugged in under ‘‘Links’’, and I have a concern if there are extensions of the Google and Firefox services and the mail clients available for Midori and Qupzilla, or any similar LIGHTWEIGHT browsers.
However, why a high-degree encryption of web browsers is slowing your connectivity down?

Tor Browser is slower for me and 8Gb Ram on an i5, even with Debian\Sid... it wraps data in math (kinda ) adding more steps tho some newer cryptography methods are faster than old ones like PCs.

Here's a "lightweight" list: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compar...t_web_browsers

My hardware system is worse than you by i3-2367 of x64 processor and 3.72GiB RAMs, but is Tor (if just working) to be much more slowing down than your hardware system?

I don't use it much and it's not too bad just slower than my other browsers.

I like ad and script blocking, that may speed things up.

Edit\add tho I use blocking more for security.
