Package: surfraw
Version: 2.2.9-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

The package is meant to be a command line convenience tool; however, it
uses web-sites that aren't compatible with command-line (ie. text)


1)  elvi: currency
    there are many alternative sites and services; surely one can be
    found to be compatible with a text browser?

2)  elvi: wolfram
    site requires javascript

BTW: I originally wanted to submit this report upstream directly;
however, the developers have chosen to host the project on gitlab, which
doesn't accept my email domain as legitimate for registration.

ii  falkon [www-browser]       3.0.0-3
ii  firefox-esr [www-browser]  60.4.0esr-1
