Dev't Environment

I'm curious to know what tools you use to code on the go. I agree that Dillo might offer a lighter weight (lower memory use) browser and I'm tempted to create a dillo.xo to try it out. The Browse activity and Firefox both use a lot of memory (18M RSS with just the default Olpc home page). Opera uses less memory than either. Mwarren 10:14, 6 December 2008 (UTC)

Yes, it looks like the Dillo project is back under development - now fully implemented with FLTK rather than GTK. It should be ideal once more work on their CSS parsing is complete - or a good CSS library is made use of.

I prefer to use screen, vim, grep, awk, sed to develop wherever I'm at. I always keep my xo on and in suspend mode when I'm not using it, so that I can get back to work where I left off.
