To my mind the heart of lynx ubiquity isn't found in security and design; they
are not unimportant, but are peripheral to this discussion, because a page is a
page, and lynx gives the best real view of its meaningful linguistic events,
which will be present (with distractors) in any browser. This is really why it
is the most appropriate tool in the many mentioned cases.

The /^   // request seems like an enhancement in this context.
