The lynx browser provides what is thought to be a similar view of the
web to the Googlebot crawler, which ultimately results in the indexing
of your website.

If you view your website with lynx and it still appears to be on
topic, with relevant text and usable navigation, it should be seen
appropriately by Googlebot. The content and ultimate search ranking
and positioning have nothing to do with lynx, but the visibility and
navigability for any search robot is similar.

Assuming you use windows, there is a version that "just works" at

Just extract the files and click on install.bat. There are 3 lines of
help at the bottom of the screeen which you will need to carefully
read, but you will be able to view your website in text if you type
'G' and then the address.

Hope that helps.
