        Quoth Tim Chase: 'Does Lynx respect HSTS (hypertext strict
transport security) such that, if a site says it will always be HTTPS,
lynx will redirect any encountered HTTP to the corresponding HTTPS
        That's been my experience.  Check the log to see for yourself.
        I fetch lots of stuff with snarf, which doesn't support https.
Since I use it in scripts I substitute http for https and it usually
works.  (If it doesn't, I use lynx -source)
