    Is that a good WHOA! or a bad WHOA!? I like Lynx. It is very fast, which is a plus. Unfortunately, I have viewed webpages that made it barf once or twice. That doesn't mean it isn't good, it's just not my favorite.

    Real Unix gurus use telnet 80 for their browsers:
    Code:
    telnet www.linuxjunior.org 80
    GET / HTTP/1.1
    Host: www.linuxjunior.com
    ;D

    Actually a good WHOA! I was surprised how simple it is to still work in Lynx.

    No kidding, I have had X bork out and needed to redownload my nVIDIA drivers and get some help on the XF86Config syntax, and Lynx saved my ass big time!

    But I was using it at our Voicemail switch (big POS) and I couldnt telnet or dial in (that box rebooted and the idiot who last worked on it set it so it would halt on all errors -- no kb did it) so a little surfing was in order

    I use to use Lynx for 80 plus percent of my browsing. Now I almost never use it, but it is there when needed.

    NGene: does w3m do cookies now? It use to not, which was why I never used it.

    Yes it does. Cookies are disabled by default but you can enable them.

    I don't know if links does cookies these days, but when I first realized there was text mode browsers that can do tables, I prefered w3m to links because with w3m I was able to log in to websites like LNO.

    BTW, in which century have you used w3m? I thought it'd been able to do cookies for a pretty long time now :P
