Simulation... Hmmm... You're examples were using notepad and iexplorer.
For notepad, ssh into the server and use vi. For iexplorer, explore
lynx, a terminal based web browser. Then again, why would you need to be
on the server to browse the web with a browser - just browse the web
from your desktop.
Other examples? Other "simulations". You will not like each simulation
