Lynx Browser Tutorial: How to Use Lynx?

Thomas E. Dickey is a world-class Unix hacker/developer. While he is best known for his work with the Mozilla project, he has worked on such projects as NetSec, SSL, Linux, Solaris, and FreeBSD. He has been a main contributor to the Open Source operating system, as well as working on the X Window server and the Python programming language. Lynx is a very versatile World-Wide-Web browser for use on both Unix and VPS platforms that are connected via cursor-friendly, character-cell terminals or graphical interface emulators, typically using the Windows interface.

Users of lynx can browse the Web and view files, run applications, access RSS feeds, store data and more using their current document format. This application can be used for viewing Word documents, PDF files, HTML documents, Power Point presentations, e-books, screen shots, audio files, video clips, music files and many other file formats. One feature of the lynx browser, which comes in handy for the neophyte user is the built-in help function. It is simple to use and can be customized by pressing the "help" button that is located in the upper right-hand corner of the screen. One feature that is useful but not necessary is the built-in password protection feature; having an external password protection software program may prove to be useful in case some of your friends or coworkers forget their login information.

The lynx browser can be accessed using either a browser or the Lynx web browser (lazelteater). To start using the web browser, a user needs to first launch the Lynx terminal and then connect to it using either a conventional phone connection or an Internet connection. From the main help page of the browser, a user can click on "about" and then click on the option to access the features of the Lynx browser. This is where the browser gets its unique identity - it uses the familiar Mozilla browser label and logo to distinguish it from the Firefox browser, which is a trademarked name owned by the prominent web browser creator Mozilla. However, a few additional features that are worth mentioning are the built-in translator and the support for the Mozilla JavaScript libraries, which provide for some advanced scripting functionalities such as animations, cookies, and local search.
