    Lynx

    Just testing my Lynx text browser.Has anyone ever really tried
    to browse the internet without a graphical browser.
    Man, it's hard to navigate.
    I came in to the world with nothing. I still have most of it.

    rcgreen you should also give Links a try .

    I do often use text only browsers when surfing from my *nix box ofcourse depending on were I want to go, for example when going to www.linux.org or www.kernel.org. Links is capable of showing frames (converts them to tables, if I remember correct).

    Thanks, RC, you inspired me to install Lynx and check it out. Actually, it's not too bad. It does take some getting used to, though.

    w3m is another good text based browser and it supports frames better.
