Lynx Browser for download
Lynx is a text browser for the World Wide Web. Lynx 2.8.3 runs on Un*x, VMS, Windows 95/98/NT but not 3.1 or 3.11, on DOS (386 or higher) and OS/2 EMX. Ports to Mac are in beta test. Lynx is one of the smallest browsers around. It takes seconds to download a page as it is a text only browser which does not support images (a good way to test if your ALT tags are relevant after). Lynx has no mouse support so you have to use your cursor keys.
This is one of the most popular alternative browsers and is compatible with Windows-based systems.
