Lynx has saved me many times when I lose my desktop. It was also a great help when I was running FreeBSD and I wanted to see the FreeBSD manual.

Lynx has two advantages: • it runs in terminal, even when no graphic desktop environment is available; • it displays sites in the way search engines see them, it is useful for web developers.

It has uses outside of a command-line browser. For example with the -dump option you can write quick Python scripts to crawl through the web that you will only use once or twice.
