Re: Trowser: A graphical less command that is more

There isn't anything wrong with less. But don't assume that the only people interested in a graphical tool are those that can't work on the cli.

I usually prefer the quickest tool out of the box to get something done. But if it's only something I do once in a blue moon I can't be bothered to learn a new cli tool. It might be quicker for some but for me the learning investment doesn't pay off if you don't often need it.

I think trowser is a great for a first version. I personally would like to see the ability to quickly search within results in the next version.
