Link rot is evil. Archive everything. The keyboard is king. Correctness over performance. Canonicalize, normalize, deduplicate. Don't repeat yourself. UTF-8 > UTF-16. Use static typing: good for tooling. Re-use; don't re-invent. Correctness, then clarity, then concision and elegance. Play devil's advocate. First understand opponents' positions.

It looks like eog is looking up information on the file descriptor (which succeeds in the special case that it was redirected directly from a file), whereas normal Unix programs will just take the input regardless of where it comes from. So eog won't work for general stdin. Another program that works is gwenview /dev/stdin (the KDE image viewer).

From the description though, it seems to result from how Firefox's error-handling code was implemented. Interesting that Chromium would have the same bug.

The Mozilla Archive Format extension for Firefox can save a static snapshot of the DOM, after Javascript has run in the browser.
