A few Tips for Using Lynx

Shirley E. Kaiser shares A few Tips for Using Lynx, a text-only browser. I use Lynx quite a lot as a basic accessibility check.

  1. I use Lynx quite a lot as a basic accessibility check.

    Oh, I realize that I use my whole Linux installation, where Lynx is running on, as an accessibility check…

  2. Julian - you know you can get Lynx on Windows right? I have a copy here, although i couldn’t tell you where i got it from - was i while ao now…

    I’m sure Google can remember ;)

  3. Sure, I know. But I need Linux for other things, too. What I meant is that when I work on Linux, I surf the web with Lynx or Konqueror just to see what sites look like.
