The most popular TextBrowser. Comes standard on most Unix installs.

See also LynxFriendly, LynxMustDie.

With the advent of cell phones and palmtops, perhaps Lynx is no longer the most common text-only browser.

In my hands, http://www.usemod.com/cgi-bin/mb.pl?action=editprefs returns

Invalid UserID 111, preferences not saved.
(Preferences require cookies, but no cookie was sent.)

when one tries to register preferences here using either lynx or w3m

ii  lynx-ssl     Text-mode WWW Browser supporting SSL
ii  w3m            0.3-2          WWW browsable pager with excellent tables/fr

on Debian 3.0r0 (woody)

Both of these browsers support use of cookies at least to some degree at other sites.

I have exactly this problem with my own installation of usemod. I've installed it on a Yopy. Everything works fine except preferences which returns the error message above. I've tried multiple browsers (all of them with cookies enabled, nothing works. .. any ideas gratefully received.
