W3m or Lynx

	W3M is another text-based web browser. It's a little awkward,
because there seems to be no way to number links. It doesn't do a bad job
with frames, and if it's compiled correctly with the OpenSSL library, it
can use SSL, as lynx can. Personally, I like lynx, as it gives more
flexibility with regard to the download of files, and option
settings. Lynx also decolumnizes sights such as www.debian.org, where w3m
does not do this. However, with w3m you can actually use it like emacs/w3
in that you can arrow through the web page line at a time. Each one has
its good and bad points, it's too bad none of them support javascript yet.
