As stated before though,  I get no clutter  on websites when using  well 
anything I use.
I felt there was an option for links the chain, because when I use the 
browser  on shellworld, information gets spoken, i. e.  the progress  of 
my reaching  a website.
I will ask on the Dos Ain't Dead list instead, since my compile of Links 
the chain is for DOS.
