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.  Grin

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

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