> for the internet. Even if lynx will never be comparable to these products

?? Lynx is incomparably superior to Netscape or MSIE in so many ways.
*THEY* are the ones which need improvement, not Lynx. If people want and
need what those pigs offer, then use them. I prefer chicken to pork, and
I'd prefer that my chicken not be fattened up to taste like pork.

Lately I've just become disgusted by the number of pages out there that
say in effect "your clumsy old browser doesn't support our bells and
whistles (and super-fancy, eye-catching advertisements) so either get
Netscape or MSIE, or go away." So I do just that, go away and never
come back. (If it's a government agency or non-profit organization, I
usually offer suggestions and give them one more chance.) I really thank
Lynx because it tells me which sites are sincere in communicating their
message and which sites are trying to rip me off.


PS To add to the rant, my students were using a machine I installed
Windows98 on for them, and in less than a month they had managed to fill
up 600MB of hard disk space with Web pages and attached graphics and
music. Who in the world would design a program with that kind of caching
on by default?
