I was looking for up to date SSL support the version above had, including supporting recent CA certs.  However, I am glad to see his efforts.  I highly support anybody who is working to provide a use for old computers.  

Juan's version has one bug I have found: Links on do not seem to work on his version.  (I have no idea: not escaping the # character correctly or string length?  I'm no good at C) That said, it works on sites that only support newer ssl.

Which lynx edition is he using, surely at least 2.8 or so?

I believe that Lynx on DOS is an under served use case.  Huge Linux fan, but sometimes I don't want to wait for it to boot.  All you need is a computer out of the junk >pile. On Mon, Jan 25, 2016 at 10:32 AM, Karen Lewellen <address@hidden> wrote:
