    I can imagine a perfect world, a world without hate, a world without war. Then I can imagine us attacking that world because they\'d never expect it.

    It's Elinks which is a text based web browser.

    Um, I don't think that's what he meant.

    I would also like to know. Maybe it's something specific to that distro?

    From the Elinks manual.
    http://elinks.or.cz/documentation/manual.html
    "9.1.6. Transparency

    Determines whether or not to set the background to black. This is particularly useful when using a terminal (typically in some windowing environment) with a background image or a transparent background. If this option is enabled the background will be visible in ELinks as well.

    Note that this boolean option makes sense only when colors are enabled. On by default."

    Oh, I never reliased that! I might have to try eLinks now. I thought it was just almost the same as Links.
