 It is very fast and easy to use. It will display HTML documents
 containing links to files residing on the local system,
 as well as files residing on remote systems running Gopher, HTTP, FTP,
 WAIS, and NNTP servers.
 This package contains a development version of lynx.

 This wrapper will provide almost all basic setup of lynx mainly for novice
 users using LANG environment variable so a user needs essentially nothing
 to do except setting LANG appropriately.
