Dear all,

Old version of links browser (links, not lynx) had javascript somewhat working.

links dropped javascript support after version links-2.1pre18.

The links-2.1pre18.tar.bz2 I still have in my home has SHA1sum
118a1b59e084b027318adc895aa69fa778c45f86, and this checksum was posted
back in 2005 on

Good luck.
