in reply to HTML as GUI for Perl program

It's a whole lot easier if you relax the "no server" requirement. Maybe easier than you suppose. You could build the application's business logic, thinly wrap it in a Mojolicious::Lite interface, and use Mojolicious's built-in server to serve it on any port of your choosing. Don't open the port to the outside world at your firewall, and restrict (using a route bridge, or "under" in Mojolicious::Lite) the client's IP to just the local machine if outside access is of concern.

Done right, at the command line you would type, "./ daemon" to start it up on port 3000, for example.

marto wonders what fresh hell the firefox update has brought, apart from maxing out CPUs
1nickt was looking into Firefox Extended Support releases yesterday. You don't have to go with the updates!
[erix]: wonderfully red sun here
[LanX]: FF has become a source of instability :(
[1nickt]: erix not so wonderful for the lungs :-(
[erix]: the stuff is pretty high up as I understand it; I have not felt any effect on lungs/breathing
