Lynx is a Web browser for users on both UNIX and VMS platforms who are connected to those systems via cursor-addressable, character-cell terminals or emulators (including VT100 terminals and desktop-based software packages emulating VT100 terminals, such as Kermit, Procomm, etc.). Lynx will display HTML documents containing links to files on the local system, as well as files on remote systems running http, gopher, ftp, wais, nntp, finger, or cso/ph/qi servers, and services accessible via logins to telnet, tn3270 or rlogin accounts.
