A lot of what javascript does is provide streaming text. It would be
very nice indeed if lynx could redirect this to a named pipe.

Suppose the tool followed this process:

1) check to see if user is using screens if not do nothing
2) otherwise redirect streaming text to a named pipe using a 
  well known name (e.g. jstream1, jstream2, etc.
3) users could then switch screens and run a process to display the
   data from the named pipe to the terminal and apply whatever 
   formatting their hearts desire outside of the lynx environment.

This would be very useful for applications such as real time 
streaming stock quotes.
