What is Lynx?

Lynx - The little browser that could:

Not too long ago the internet was in the beginning stages. It didn't have all the visual bells and whistles it has today. This was mostly due to the fact that computers were built with a lot less power. Plus, dial up modems offered slow surfing. Back then if people wanted information fast they had the option of using a browser called -- Lynx. This is a text only browser that doesn't show pictures. So it doesn't waste power and time displaying visuals. Today, this site is still around. It's mostly used by people with low powered or limited systems. Linx is also useful for people that are visually impaired.
