an All Creative World site

Geek browser

Since OS X is built on BSD you can run Unix programs on it. For example you can run the text based web browser Links. You can run Links in text only mode, so that browsing becomes extremely fast even on very slow connections. Use links to impress your girlfriend or to browse CreativeBits on the road with your bluetooth mobile connection. Download the 0.95 version for text only browsing. (The 0.99 version supports graphics as well, but than you're probably already using a better browser for the full experience anyway.) Hint: once you launch the application hit G to enter the site's url.

I remember in the 14.4 days there was a terminal browser [text-only] named Linx. Is this the same one?

I think Links is based on Lynx, but not sure.
