 2005 Text Mode Browser Roundup

"Browsing the Web in text mode has a long history. Initially, text mode was all there was, with the CERN Line Mode Browser (also called www). The ever-present Lynx made the jump to full-screen text mode, as opposed to line-by-line, in late 1992. Lynx continues to be maintained and extended today. Incidentally, Lynx originally was a browser for Gopher and some in-house university hypertext systems. Emacs/W3 came next, in 1993, and was written in Emacs Lisp."
