Just adding a real world example from about ten minutes ago.
Part of my professional life is as a journalist myself.
I have the old google news set as the homepage for lynx here at shellworld. This morning there was a shooting in Maryland, and preferring local sources, I chose an article from the Baltimore sun..being taken to a perfect low graphics edition of the piece with active links for the critical information. I find this more and more with news sources, and believe it can exist in other places as well. General consumers or many of them appreciate just getting the job done, with lynx making this possible.

dear friends, is there anybody using lynx anymore  ?

Enough that this list is active.

Speaking personally, it's the only browser I use.  At work, I used to
use Firefox, until one day when it decided to "upgrade" itself without
even telling, much less asking, me - despite my having turned off every
"check for updates" setting I could find - and broke something (I no
longer recall what) in the process.  That finally pushed me into
switching to lynx.  Except for two small and easy-to-make changes,
which I think I mentioned here, lynx has worked fine for me there.
