Err . . .

There is a *single* reason I stopped using lynx a few years ago.

In an updated release, something went wrong  with the code for launching
external applications on links.  I had had "." set up to launch  a new
exterm running lynx on it, so that I could step through a news site (or
whatever)  and launch everything I wanted to read.

And Lycos?  Harumph.

No match for altavista . . .
