Command line browsing with Lynx

Thought I'd share this with anyone that isn't aware of it.

One of the tools I find quite useful when tracking down errors following an installation of  any products on Linux that require a web interface is Lynx.

I first came across this many, many years ago when web browsers were basic and flaky and it remains in my arsenal of useful tools.

Simply install it with your standard package tools, yum or apt-get and then run it direct from the command line pointing to the url of your new application.

ie. lynx http://localhost:8080

tab/arrows and enter are used for the default navigation.

However, I wouldn't recommend trying to complete an installation with this as entering a license key can prove a little frustrating.


Any other handy little tools any of you use that are worth sharing?
