Projects / Links


Links is graphics and text mode WWW browser, similar to Lynx. It displays tables, frames, downloads on background, uses HTTP/1.1 keepalive connections, and features Javascript. In graphics mode it displays PNG, JPEG, GIF, TIFF, and XBM pictures, runs external bindings on other types, and features anti-aliased font, smooth image zooming, 48-bit dithering, and gamma and aspect ratio correction.

            You can, holding the SHIFT key.

            A breath of fresh air...
            Of all browsers I have tried none, truly none, can face up to the speed, simplicity and niftiness of Links. Thought you cannot copy text in Links and some very few pages do display incorrectly in X11 mode this browser is simply the best.

            ELinks on old handhelds
            I've been searching for a decent text web browser to run on old handheld systems with 21 x 16 character displays, and ELinks seems to be a good candidate. However, I'm running into some problems. To your knowledge, has anyone attempted this before? If there is any information out there about this, it would make my life a lot easier :)

            For a lot of people, running X is something they only feel the need, or want, to do when they need to use a web browser. Links saves the day for people who wish to stay in their sacred consoles. Setting the proper associations in your .links.cfg file to console based multi-media applications such as seejpeg, mpg123, etc.. along with the built-in page rendering capabilities links offers is truely a breath of fresh air.

            Sure, apologies; the situation was different when I wrote that comment.
            However, ELinks (now Enhanced/Extended Links) is still available for those, who
