lynx is a text-mode WWW browser. This is an update to the version published in 2014 by NielDK, and should work with the system openssl provided with Sailfish. I am not the developer of lynx and I did not package it. NielDK packaged it but it was not available on so far. lynx can be a dependency to other CLI tools.

lynx is a fully-featured World Wide Web (WWW) client for users running cursor-addressable, character-cell display devices (e.g., vt100 terminals, vt100 emulators running on PCs or Macs, or any other "curses-oriented" display). It will display hypertext markup language (HTML) documents containing links to files residing on the local system, as well as files residing on remote systems running Gopher, HTTP, FTP, WAIS, and NNTP servers.

Prefer Havoc, Literm or Toeterm for better colours (see screenshots).

Kabouik's picture

As opposed to what was initially written in the description, delete the line in your ~/.bash_profile that reads "export TERM=xterm-256color", if you have one. It is not necessary for lynx, and this variable should not be set system-wide anyway.
