It feels disingenuous to call this world’s smallest office suite, when it requires a 10 ton monster that is the browser to operate. Take for example the Apple Writer 1.0 - it is fully contained within 140KB, and runs on anything between your 1979 Apple II and your browser.
Depending on where you draw your line of abstraction, yes.
But I don’t think it is a contest, I enjoyed reading the article.
While you’re right about it not being small – nearly everyone will have a browser on their computer nowadays, for better or for worse. So the fact that you can add these small sprinkles on top is pretty nice.
Maybe I’m just unused to MAME in the browser but the version linked doesn’t support backspace, nor Swedish characters.
I was wondering about the backspace thing too… I wonder if the Apple II had one?
I was curious so I searched for it and it turns out that the delete key presenting a square glyph instead of deleting the previous character is something the Apple II did.
Ignoring the fact that you need a huge browser in order to do this, it’s a pretty neat hack! Especially since you can easily save and/or print what you wrote.
Also, probably the first time I’ve ever seen a GH repo be 100% html!
Ctrl+B ist Bookmarks on firefox, so nope.
Not on macOS :)
