I don't have a browser terminal suggestion, but in the spirit of the
trilug list and proposing something you didn't ask about: What about
having SSH at home listen on 80 or 443?

I set up a machine at home doing that so I can ssh from the hotspot at
Staples that only allows web traffic.  ssh -D FTW.
