Default Lynx, Links, or Elinks?

As the subject says: Which text browser do you recommend?

( I just want to read some documentations in HTML. )

w3m,links and elinks. w3m and links as they support displaying images
under framebuffer, and elinks for it's javascript support.
If you don't need these features, any text browser is good for
browsing html documentation

Seconded. In addition, if you ever need to read East Asian characters,
there is a good extension to w3m called w3mmee which supports multibyte
encoding formats (stuff like Big5, euc-JP etc).

Not too long ago, I was using elinks for the same reason, but found
that sites were complaining about the amount of js support, telling me
to upgrade :-(


Afterthought: it was actually the Oracle website where I was going to
get the jdk / documentation, which has gone back to being
fetch-restricted :-( :-( :-(

Another vote for lynx here, though I also have to have elinks for those
times lynx is too "bare bones". The javascript and tabs do come in handy
sometimes, but lynx is faster, prettier, and renders most sites well enough.

In my experience, elinks has the best support for showing you
formatted, colorized, javascripted HTML in text console.

I have used it during my new installation on x86_64 to read the handbook
of Gentoo. Problem was, that the lines there were too long to fit into
the 80x24 window on console.

The lines were truncated and i had to guess what would be displayed
without truncation. Maybe there is a way of horizontal scrolling
which i had not found.

links uses [] for horizontal scrolling. I also like how it handles
tables. But: I recommend to install all four (or at least lynx, links
and w3m), as all have shortcomings/quirks and advantages (e.g. when
dumping html as text results vary and with what options you can "tune"
the result).
