i haven't tried Links or W3M, as i find Lynx excellent for most purposes,
not least its navigating power; for images, download to a file,
then goto another desktop (Linux + KDE) & look at them with  xv ;
for tables, there's Tom Zerucha's script, which works very well:
you list it under printers, send it the source & it outputs a file of tables.

the big, big problem is JS, which is taking over like creeping ivy:
at least, couldn't we get Lynx to extract URLs from JS & show them as links?
