http://sachachua.com

"With Emacs' reputation for including everything _and_ the kitchen sink, you probably won't be surprised to hear that there's more than one way to surf the Internet using your text editor. With today's Javascript- and image-heavy websites, it can be hard to believe that anyone would use a text-based browser with limited support for many of the things we take for granted.

Not only does it make users less secure overall by reducing the number of encrypted connections, it damages the basic principle of equality among web participants..."

http://www.thefigtrees.net
