|fast movement within & between documents

If you turn off images in Opera 6 (File -> Preferences -> Multimedia)
it's as fast as lynx on a decent system, and still
handles frames.

|yes, you can define a mailer, but no, you can't import the story).

I haven't experimented with this.

|i have broadband, but Lynx remains the best browser for this purpose.

I still prefer lynx for text browsing (why use
a sledgehammer when a tack hammer is called for?)
but I suspect Opera comes in handy sometimes,
if only for times frames really help.
