Lynx Browser
« on: August 01, 2011, 08:16:20 pm »

Anyone still using the Lynx text based browser, about fastest on earth?

Before dillo came along Lynx was my main browser. Even posted with it on this
forum when my X was busted.

All the time. It is the html engine in Midnight Commander. And there have been several times when I needed some quick info or a file on a remote machine. The text interface is far from dead.  ;D

Couldn't find lynx in the repository so I've built it.

Perhaps you who know it best can give it the once over.
