Text based browser.
Some of you probably can't imagine why you'd care about that, but in fact I use Lynx every single day. No, not to browse web pages, but to dump them out to text:
lynx -dump -nolist somepage.html
I do that to make text versions of the FAQ pages in the ftp directory.
Of course, every now and then I really need it: setting up a machine with some stubborn or unsupported video card that is keeping me in text mode. Lynx lets me at least get to SOME web sites, though far too many are unfriendly in that regard and if they work at all, are very difficult to use without graphics.
I try to keep my own pages usable with Lynx, but less and less people consider that at all.
Got something to add? Send me email.
