Quick and dirty file transfer, but not really neccary, just a thought...

I tried w3m a (longish)while ago for the table support, the found links and
never looked back.  Uses the arrows just like lynx, d for download,
<insert>/<deleate>/<[>/<]> for scrolling  the thing is tho, lynx supports
quite a bit more then 'simple' web browsing.  I've yet to use it for
extended features, but I know it does neat stuff like stripping html tags
and other neat stuff in shell scripts.  Dunno how many people use those
other features?  My vote's for Links anyways.

Yea, pentiums are at the same price now basicly as a 486 and at least as
common,  good points on the AMD/Cyrix things from others tho...
