I'm using lynx even with pictured pages, and links+ for all
cases where it's really needed. There are only two pages
which don't work with these browsers, that's orkut and the
online banking system of one of my two banks.

Most "modern" people "use" the web for viewing "pages" of
multi-media content; however, a few still know that HTML
is no design language, and don't need to parse flash and
whatnot. We use the web primarily for looking at news
(such as or or for content (text,
that is). Lynx is perfectly good, and reading the XHTML 2
draft I think there are in fact two "web"s, barely compa-
tible to each other. Luckily, most pages interesting to us
are still in the original www.
