the answer is tabs, well known eg in Galeon, my regular GUI browser.
if you don't know re them, you middle-click on the link
& the new doc appears under a separate tab at the top of the display:
you can then move between docs by clicking on their respective tabs.

might something like this be possible in Lynx ?  we couldn't do tabs,
but they mb emulated by a list of available docs activated by a defined key.

care to have a go at programming that (smile)?
