Less is more :)

ok, maybe I’m getting old :grin:
But I think over and over that less is more
I’ve got a barebone EOS with SWAY :slight_smile: starting with around 450kb of memory used
but what could I remove yet?
I use it just for internet, firefox and chrome

Get rid of the graphical session, and stick to TTY. You can use a text-based browser, like Lynx and wget to download stuff.

Sure, that’s even better, but the OP said he wanted to use it for browsing the internet. :wink:

… an old saying about “less” and “more”, two text page viewing tools: “Less is more than more; More is less than less!”

I’m not sure what is said about “most”! :slight_smile:
