"Links is, like its homonym Lynx, a text-only browser that provides just the textual information of a given Web page. Also like Lynx, Links is also available on several platforms, including Linux and FreeBSD."

"Unlike Lynx, Links provides quite a few extras with its display--the most noticeable being the multicolumn screen. When Links displays BrowserWatch, it does not list the contents of the left column first, followed by the content of this column, as Lynx does. Text is shown on the Links screen with a fair approximation."

"Besides tabular support, frames are supported in versions 0.90 and beyond. Color support is also included."

"Links also has mouse support and when I tested it on the Linux platform, I found the mouse support to be stable and very useful. No more scrolling through all of the different links to get to the one I wanted."
