Which text-based browser?
I installed linux without X b/c i don't have much RAM in my
comp (32 megs) and I have been using LYNX to Surf the web
but I would like to try another browser. If anyone has any
good suggestions I would greatly appreciate the help.

I've traditionally used Lynx for my text-based browsing. A little search on google brought up the following:
There is also Links. This is a textbased browser that deals with frames (I discovered it with my recent install of Slackware). Here's the sourceforge link:
Hope that helps.

This was covered here before and i think i and others who added to the thread gave more than enough links to keep you happy.

Gore, aren't those Windows-based Text Browsers?

no, when i did the search i made sure it wasnt just one platform, should be a huge list for justabout anything. Also the Jinx added one he uses alot and i know that one isnt Windows.
For example on one of the pages i listed:
"3270 terminal web browser for mainframes running OS/390."
"Links is a text-based browser with support for HTML tables and frames. For Unix, OS/2, BeOS, MacOSX, Win32 (Beta). "
"Pure text Internet tools for the DOS operating system, including a web page grabber and mail reader"
"A text-only browser from Japan, similar to Lynx. "
All that was from only one of the pages and only a small portino. Theres somethign there for everyone.

hey, not sure if this would work for you, but i use a local proxy to strip img tags and all other unwanted HTML... although if you really want textbased (console) browsing, i'd still suggest Lynx
