ChromeLite: experience the ASCII Web of yesteryear

ChromeLite: experience the ASCII Web of yesteryear | ASCII Art | Scoop.it

Now, ChromeLite isn't really all that functional. For the most part, it simply strips images and converts text into a monospaced terminal font. There are a few Easter eggs inserted -- such as a fun message at the bottom of YouTube (image after the break) -- and some fun ASCII art, but that's about it. Rather oddly, most JavaScript continues to work -- so you can still enjoy Google Instant Search!

 

ChromeLite was actually made by Google as an April Fools' joke -- and indeed, an annoying 'you can uninstall this!' message appears at the top of every page -- but we're kind of hoping that Google, or another developer, takes ChromeLite and turns it into a real ASCII browsing extension with configurable settings. If anything, it will provide an easy way to save bandwidth and CPU time.

Ok, we all know about that ASCII portraits of Mona Lisa, Elvis and other images for many years in our computers. Even some talented people developed programs for generating these kind of images automatically by ASCII. Nienke Sybrandy has made a further step by pressing ASCII art on a usual curtain. From distance it looks like a beautiful tree. When you approach you understand that all are just ASCII characters. A good unique application of well-known concept.

Cambus.net: ANSi and ASCii themes for Chrome

Cambus.net: ANSi and ASCii themes for Chrome | ASCII Art | Scoop.it

I’m pleased to announce the release of my minimalist ANSi and ASCii based themes for Chrome and Chromium. I kept everything simple on purpose, as the default theme is very clean, nice, and efficient : these two themes just aim to give a discreet text mode feeling to everyday life browsing, nothing more, nothing less.

 

The color differences from the original theme can be seen in the status and download bars as well as in the detached bookmarks bar (where I used color #07 (light gray) from the ANSI / EGA palette) and in the text links where color #08 (dark gray) was used.

W3: ASCII Art

Detection Algorithm

We have create an algorithm based on the specifications below and tested it on several hundred pages. The simple algorithm is:

 

ASCII art occurs between PRE or XMP elements
It must have greater than 5 lines of text
It must have at least one sequence of 5 same characters


The algorithm works quite well at detecting ASCII art. It misses very few ASCII art images and gives a small number of false positives. Two of the things it detects as ASCII art are computer programming source code examples and guitar tabulature.
