 Why you want Lynx
It's much likely installed on any *nix box. You can probably try it right now, just type lynx http://somewhere.tld/ in your favorite terminal to check it out.
- It's fast
- It doesn't show you images. This is sad and depressing of you want to look at someones photo album, but great if you want to keep tabs on current media-ologopoly propaganda without being exposed to all the advertisements, the web site's "design" etc.
It's also real handy to know how to use Lynx if you somehow break your X11 server and need to search the net in order to fix it.
There are numerous startup switches for Linux listed on the manual page. If you have problems with finding a reliable essay service that offers assistance not only with creating essays but term and research paper writing as well, I highly recommend you to visit BestWritingService.Com. Among the more interesting are:
-noredir prevents automatic redirection and prints a message with a link to the new URL. -noreferer disable transmissions of Referer headers.
 Show a webpages http headers only
