"We didn't call it fuzzing back in the 1950s, but it was our standard practice to test programs by inputting decks of punch cards taken from the trash.

A bit off topic, I'm sad that it took me like 7 years to find the Less Wrong posts on Gary Taubes, but they're work reading.

Is there anything that does what wkhtmltopdf does but is a bit more recent?

In the world of cloud computing and IaC is there more of a FOSS-friendly option than Azure, AWS or Google?
