10 I like elinks for its tabs capability and easy configurability through its GUI
11 (the latter isn’t a killer feature in console land, but it makes it easy for
12 example to find every keyboard-assignable feature it has).
14 And concerning size:
16 ls -l /usr/bin/{lynx,elinks}
17 -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 933972 24. Okt 15:56 /usr/bin/elinks
18 -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 1286964 6. Jun 2011 /usr/bin/lynx
20 Plus, if you need it, elinks provides a number of other goodies like support
21 for bittorrent or samba.
