15 links uses [] for horizontal scrolling. I also like how it handles
16 tables. But: I recommend to install all four (or at least lynx, links
17 and w3m), as all have shortcomings/quirks and advantages (e.g. when
18 dumping html as text results vary and with what options you can "tune"
19 the result).
