    Lynx is a very simple command line based web browser, that would be cool to have just as a novelty.

    Since its a command line app, shouldn't the porting just be a simple compiling? (I can't do it myself, I have a G5, and need a intel to do it).

    I said, it would be a nice thing to have just as a novelty, not to mention a lightweight alternative to safari....

    This would be the only way to get a WEP hacking program installed...

    Ahhhh yes, Lynx. It would be nice if it was ported. Since it is command line, no images

    . Making loading pages lots faster, also, the ability to read pages that have a bunch of text on them becomes much easier.

    You musn't be so sinister, Lynx is a great application and supports Javascript/HTML also. It's understandable if you're only familiar with GUIs and have no idea how to use command line or feel uncomfortable with it. You'll soon learn a lot.
