As I am no longer able to run code club at the library. The frustration with the poor performance of Chromium browser on Debian has prompted me to install Chrome browser.

After a quick search I found a how_to which is easy to follow and Chrome is now fully installed and working.

Chrome browser

Performance is now vastly better. I am not sure what is causing the issue on Debian. It needs investigating properly.

ZX SPECTRUM GAMES IN THE BROWSER

The ZX Spectrum was a computer released by Sinclair Research back in 1982. It was built around the Zilog Z80 8 bit CPU.

Along with the Commodore 64, The ZX Spectrum was a very popular computer back in the 80's and early 90's and there were many classic games made during this period. Some modern games can trace their roots back to the 80's. Thanks to projects such as RetroPie, retro games can be played on modern hardware.

You can now play classic games such as Jet Set Willy in emulators, for operating systems such as Linux, MacOS and Windows. You can also play games, in a web browser, which is great for going back to your childhood memories of 8 bit gaming without having to set up an emulator.

One such site is http://www.onsite-computers.co.uk, which offers over 200 classic games. Some games have been written as recently as the 2000's so the developer community is still out there.

You can have a go here

Spectrum Screen This is the main spectrum screen, from here you could for example load games and type in Sinclair Basic programs, also called Speccy BASIC.

Following a conversation on the Mosaic browser. I decided to try and view my personal Journal blog in the Lynx console browser. Screenshot below.

The blog works really nicely on Lynx. I can navigate, select links and the various static pages. Lynx does not display pictures or other media, but this is fine. It should display the alt text data though.

This at least allows my website to be viewed in other browsers at least, not that I can see people moving en-masse to text based browsers.

Lynx can be installed with apt install lynx as root user of course.
