I generally do not connect to web sites from my own machine, aside from a few sites I have some special relationship with. I usually fetch web pages from other sites by sending mail to a program (see git://git.gnu.org/womb/hacks.git) that fetches them, much like wget, and then mails them back to me. Then I look at them using a web browser, unless it is easy to see the text in the HTML page directly. I usually try lynx first, then a graphical browser if the page needs it (using konqueror, which won’t fetch from other sites in such a situation).

(ihr lacht jetzt, aber den letzten lacher hat er vl. im grab, wenn dann niemand – zumindest mit absoluter sicherheit – rekonstruieren kann, welche webseiten er sich angeschaut hat)
