        I think that the number of people using Lynx because they have no
  GUI alternative is steadily declining, and the number of people using it for
  speed when they're after just content is increasing.  The latter reflects
  failure of the GUI developers to set up efficient "text only" modes for
  their clients, which presumeably will come when the glitz fads become old
Those market share trends -- agree.  However there's not too much
Lou Montulli &Friends writing the GUI browsers can do to catch
their effective speed up to Lynx, so long as they sit at the end
of a NetConnection by PPP at 28.8 Kbps.  Lynx just sits closer to
where the packets fly.  Yasha pointed that out aeons ago.  This
is why Clinton &Friends are pouring your tax $$ into hastening
the day of the gigabit onramp.  Uncle Bill (Gates) wants it that
way.  After all, what's good for <strikeout>GM</strikeout>
<insert>MicroSoft</insert> is good for America, right?
