You would be maybe surprised, but the "JavaScript required everywhere" popular
belief is not true from a large part. In fact, most of the sites are perfectly
functional without JavaScript and if they use it, frequently only for
additional eyecandy or convience. Sure there are places where it's a no-go
without JavaScript support, but they aren't *that* frequent; obviously it
depends on everyone what sites he uses, but I believe this is true for the
mainstream webs as well.. at least I only rarely need to start up mozilla when
I stumble upon such a page in ELinks.

There is also Links, which has more features than dillo, but it's not that fast
(altough still very fast), a lot less elegant and hardly extensible ;). It
supports SSL, though, and has some (well, rather pathetic) support for
JavaScript, while we are at the advertising :^).
