I am open to more explainations of how to do post right :-)

Tmux and Screen have copy-paste included, use the shortcuts '[' and
']' (square brackets).

They are also fooled by these spaces at linewraps.

I just tested that what is printed by command echo
averyvery[...]longline can be mouse selected by one double click,
inside tmux.

When your lynx is showing a web page sounding like the included video
is interesting, or a web page malfunctionning because it need
javascript for what you want to do, how do you usually react ?

I assure you that I use numbers to select links[1].

[1] the small problem is when the first link of the currently shown
page is a text field: I need to get of that text field first before
typing a link number.
