I have a need for a browser to use in a point of sale application that runs on
DOS and one of the key functions is doing price lookups which need to be quick,
under one second.  The connect and reconnect times blow about 2 seconds.

Why do you want it?   It's of rather limited value except when
loading multiple frames and multiple images to form a single
logical page.

The only time it might be of use is if you are crawling a site for
which you have had prior permission to waive the standard 30 second
delay between requests.  (I don't belive Lynx enforces this delay
so should never be used without prior permission.)
