node termkit.js #Your terminal emulator needs mouse support
#To scroll use pageup & pagedown keys or your mouse scroll wheel. To browse to a website use the address bar or click on links. (the clicking is not perfect and does not always work TODO someone FIX clicking)
#Sometimes website are not rendered properly at load time, use Ctr+R to refresh the render.
#When you scroll hold your mouse to the side, if you scroll and the cursor is above a link the page will not scroll.
#Exit the browser with Esc or Q #TODO someone add proper keyboard support

Dependencies

I believe that chrome-remote-interface requires node v8.
Some of the newer features of “Chrome DevTools Protocol” are used. Chrome v64 has been proven to work.
