Lynx is a text-based world wide web browser that is popular on most Unix shell accounts. Lynx preceded Mosaic as the web browser of choice and remains a favorite of Unix shell account users who want access to data stored on web servers but don't want or need the graphics that can slow down the data gathering process. It is essentially Mosaic without the graphics. Lynx is client software stored on your internet provider's host server. You load it by entering Lynx at your Unix prompt.
