Links doesn't use curses - one difference.  Just for comparison, you might
try the slang configuration of lynx (I'm curious, though I'm not known to
recommend it ;-)

I don't see setsid or similar functions in links that would indicate it's
doing anything special to establish a new controlling terminal, etc.

maybe - but the symbol table of links says it uses stdio.  So it doesn't
seem so simple.
