Using Lynx for Web Browsing Next Slide

One web browser that can be run in a plain text terminal is called Lynx.

Because Lynx is text-based, you will only be able to see text on web pages. Instead of images, you'll see placeholders like [image1.gif]. Also, fancy formatting like tables may not appear correctly.

To start Lynx, we can type:

% lynx

or start it up with a initial web page to load:

% lynx http://www.cs.bu.edu

at the UNIX prompt.
