Obscure trick of the week:

   http_proxy="" src/lynx http://localhost:3128/

instead of

   http_proxy="http://localhost:3128/"; src/lynx

allows you to put the proxy as part of the URL (which then of course
isn't really a valid URL any more), so you can test various proxies
for various URLs in one session...

Well, normal URLs won't work in that session (you can 'fix' some of them
up manually, by adding a superfluous slash after the hostname).
And the requests aren't constructed correctly (wrong Host header, so
will fail for many virtual hosting servers).
