Linkx is a fork of the links browser which contains experimental/less 
stable features. It is now in sync with links 2.2. Extra features include:

Cookies (patterns for accept/reject/etc)
Access keys  (very easy keyboard based browsing)
A forward button
DnD support under X
Italic fonts (optional)

The website is here:


Get linkx from CVS with the following command

cvs -z3 -d:pserver:anonymous at linkx.cvs.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/linkx co -P linkx

Build using:  ./configure && make

If you want italics, run: bash extra_fonts.sh

This requires gs, netpbm, gawk and bash
