I recently compiled Lynx with OpenSSL 0.9.8a, and got the below
results from the SSL check at:

It's nice to see that open source is ahead of the commercials. Both
IE and Netscape only connect using a 128 bit key.

     You have connected to this web server using the
              encryption cipher with a key length of 256 bits.

    This is a high-grade encryption connection, regarded by most
    as being suitable for sending or receiving even the most
sensitive or
                   valuable information across a network.
