LinuxPlanet: Links Provides Multicolumn Text Browsing

“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.”
