Dear Sir or Madam:
When are we going to drop Lynx 2.8.tweak.fudge.jumper and get lynx-windows 4.0 
or so?!
I mean, DECSystem20 had PTYCON, and that was more than 2 decades ago in the 
mid'70's! PTYCON was "pseudo-teletype-controller" which operated like an 
advanced windows3.1<control-escape>task-window: it inserted message-alerts from 
the other tasks, and popped-up its connection-controller on ^X (that's 
control-X) and showed you the status of pseudo-terminal 
task/job/connection-numbers. Where's lynx-windows 4.0? Simple javascript (no 
text-dimming, but, etc., yes), and https-secure links, and 
multi-tasks, (split-frames would be interesting if available, but not the 
necessity), copy-paste-insert-lines of selected text into textarea/input boxes, 
status-bar alerts [or pop-up box alerts] ... all the simple features we've come 
to expect in a 4.0 browser. [Lynx-Gold 4.0 anyone?]

PS - I should have recalled quicker: that was in the days of DEC VT52, before 
the first VT100 white-boxes arrived! PTYCON was very easy to use: I ran several 
jobs/tasks/ simultaneously: editing text files in one, FORTAN-test programs in 
others, a copy of the LPSAS stockroom-accounting in yet another, the LMP u-code 
assembler in another ... that was all normal work-load in the mid'70's - not 
just this web-browsering. So, we want lynx-windows 4.0!
  Cordially and sincerely.
