lynx: Web Browser for the Terminal1

Lynx is a fully-featured World Wide Web (WWW) client for users running cursor-addressable, character-cell display devices such as vt100 terminals, vt100 emulators running on Windows 95/NT or Macintoshes, or any other character-cell display. It will display Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) documents containing links to files on the local system, as well as files on remote systems running http, gopher, ftp, wais, nntp, finger, or cso/ph/qi servers, and services accessible via logins to telnet, tn3270 or rlogin accounts.

This version of lynx is built with the SSL-MM patch which enables support for HTTP over SSL (HTTPS) and NNTP over SSL (SNEWS). SSL is handled transparently, allowing users to continue accessing web sites and news services from within Lynx through the same interface for both secure and standard transfers.
