This is the case where I'm not using a desktop, but am

a browser on the ssh-target system and displays it
via X on the ssh-source system, apparently using
information from:
~/.local/share/applications/mimeapps.list )

To test the "xdg-open" command, I used
google's search page which opened in the background.
Nevertheless, in background, it used a bit over 9MB/s
to display the animation on it's search page -- not
a problem for me, but it does seem 80Mb/s might
be a stretch for somebody on WiFI.


I think that if you fire up firefox from inside ssh, it tries to run
Firefox of the client machine, thus avoiding that B/W problem.
