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.

Line Mode Browser - / home page /

Text-based web browser. Versions for Linux, some other *nix systems, Mac OS X, Windows, DOS. And outside PC world for VMS, VM/CMS, MVS, Ultrix (DECStation and VAX), etc.

Line Mode Browser is the second web browser ever created. It was initially one of the most popular web browsers, later replaced by Mosaic and in its proper niche, text-only web browsing, by Lynx. So that Line Mode Browser ended up to be a test or example application for the libwww library and distributed as a part of the libwww package. The development of Line Mode Browser is still active.

HTML. Network protocols: HTTP, Gopher, FTP, NNTP, WAIS. Capability to follow links directly to telnet and rlogin sites. Cyrillic support.

There is also Debris text-based browser, but it is not always possible to compile and install it on modern Linux distributions. And Emacs/W3, a text-based web browser for the GNU Emacs text editor, written in GNU Emacs Lisp programming language - its development seems to be discontinued since November 14, 1999; W3m / emacs-w3m is used instead.

Unzip multiple files. Linux


Unzip multiple zip files into one directory by Linux command line unzip. Contrary to possible expectations, "unzip *.zip" is not going to work, *.zip should be put into quotes: unzip "*.zip" There may be files with the same names in these archives. To avoid overwriting: unzip -B "*.zip" "Unzip -B" makes unzip to overwrite duplicates during extraction process, but saving a backup copy of each overwritten file. The names for these backup copy files are created by adding tilde ("~") at the end of the original names of the files. If a file extension is present, then "~" is added after it. If that is not enough, unique sequence number (up to 5 digits) is appended after the "~". "Unzip -B" is not too practical. For example, since when the sequence number range for numbered backup files gets exhausted (99999, or 65535 for 16-bit systems), the backup file with the maximum sequence number is deleted and replaced by the new backup version without notice ( More on the subject ). The number of files in an archive may not be always known in advance or may be more than possible sequence number range, so "Unzip -B" is not a great choice. Renaming duplicate files by adding "~" at the end of their names, after the extension, is not too convenient either. But another built-in option is even worse. If the "-B" modifier is not used, each time a file with same name as there already unpacked is being extracted, unzip asks "replace example.txt? [y]es, [n]o, [A]ll, [N]one, [r]ename:". And each time "r" must be hit, then a new name has to be input. So some bash or another script solving the problem should probably be prepared and used instead.

Internet Explorer 3. Screenshots 1


Internet Explorer 3 running under Windows 7 (32-bit). Screenshots 1. Internet Explorer 3: windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/upgrade-your-browser Internet Explorer 3: w3schools.com/browsers/browsers_stats.asp Internet Explorer 3: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_Explorer_3 Internet Explorer 3: ebay.com Internet Explorer 3: kompx.com/en/netscape-3-screenshots-1.htm Internet Explorer 3: twitter.com Download Internet Explorer 3: a pack, containing 3.0, 4.01, 5.01, 5.5, 6.0 versions of Internet Explorer. During installation process it is possible to select which one version only to install or install several or install all. It is very much probable that all versions, except Internet Explorer 3, will not work even under 32-bit Windows 7. So if you would like to try all older Internet Explorers you should have Windows XP or earlier installed. Internet Explorer 3 functions under 32-bit Windows 7 pretty well though.
