Text-based web browsers for Linux

Operating systems : Linux

Lynx : Links : ELinks : W3m : Netrik : Retawq : Line mode browser

When general public Linux distributions came around, web browsing was quite young, but with some way behind it. There were several web browsers already, many of them ported gradually to Linux. Some text-based web browsers were in the first wave. After a while Linux became the main habitat of text-based browsers, where most of them are developed and used. Even if these text-based web browsers are mostly intended not just for Linux, but for various other *nix systems as well. And there are also their ports to plenty of other operating systems for most various platforms.
