Links vs Lynx – war of the text browsers

6 Reasons why Links rocks:
1. Links manages downloads – Lynx doesn’t
2. Links can block popups – Lynx doesn’t
3. Links is faster
4. Links has add blocking features
5. Links can parse Javascript
6. Links supports frames

2 Reasons why Lynx rocks:
1. Lynx supports ipv6 (Links doesn’t)
2. Lynx does usenet (and even gopher)

For the rest of it, both manage bookmarks and both are easy to use
and both are GPL – so I guess they are both cool

Of course Lynx is older (1993) than Links (1999), more established and many
more people just know how it works
