Browse The Web With Blazing Speed!

No I'm not talking about downloading the latest beta version of Google Chrome. Want to run the browser with the fastest rendering time out there ? Try out Lynx, a text based command line browser for Unix. It is really easy to build and install Lynx in a few minutes and you have a fully functional web browser you can use from the command line. I used the following commands to download and install Lynx:

curl ftp://lynx.isc.org/lynx2.8.7/lynx2-8-7.zip > lynx2-8-7.zip
unzip lynx2-8-7.zip
cd lynx2-8-7/
./configure
make
sudo make install

(Note I built Lynx on OS X 10.5.7 PowerPC)

Thats it, you should have a working version of lynx, to take it for a test drive try

lynx http://www.google.com/
