brotli is a new compression algorithm capable of compressing web pages. Most of pages served by cloudflare will be compressed with brotli if the client sends Accept-Encoding: br

Links-browser has the capability of displaying brotli compressed web pages if linked with brotli.
Just view the browser request header.
1. On a terminal, start nc with empty http response, i.e. `printf "HTTP/1.1 200 OK\r\n\r\n" | nc -l 9000`
2. On another terminal, launch links and open http://localhost:9000
3. Notice that there is no br string in the Accept-Encoding field.

Add brotli/librotli as dependency for links package.
