w3m is a pager/text-based WWW browser as well as a pager like `more' or `less'. It is similar to Lynx, but has several features Lynx doesn't have. It can render tables, frames (by converting frames into tables), display a document given from standard input, be navigated by mouse in an xterm or in a gpm driven console, and it is small. Moreover, w3m can be used as a text formatting tool which typesets HTML into plain text.
