lynx. I love browsing without tabs. Call me a luddite, but I only use a modern browser if I have to. Which is about twice a day, for a few minutes at most.
There's one thing I really really hate about
lynx, though. It's not immediately apparent how to customize
lynx's behavior when it comes to filetypes.
If I encounter a .pdf file, it downloads it, then dutifully asks me if I'd like to save it to disk. Thanks,
lynx. It's like you read my mind or something.
If I encounter a .torrent file,
lynx downloads it, then opens it with
lynx. I would have either preferred
transmission-cli or just having the torrent file.
If I try to open a magnet URL,
lynx doesn't know what to do with it. (Psst!
But the worst is when I download .ogg, because
lynx assumes that I want to play it with VLC in the TTY using caca to render the video as ASCII.
How do I whip lynx into shape? How do I customize this behavior? Editing
/etc/lynx/lynx.cfg does not seem to do the trick.
