Re: LYNX-DEV SLCC lynx-dev archives

Yesterday, Scott put up a faq-kind-of-page re lynx;
I went and looked at it, and liked it.

Then I hit "H" to see if it was at all obvious how
to GET TO it.  It wasn't; in fact, I never did get to

(even though Scott's new page was experimental, and
might not be reachable via H):

Suggestion: the H page maybe be either LONGER,
or SHORTER, with but ONE "re-lynx" item, which gets
you to a LONG "index" page, so you can see pretty
much EVERYTHING at once, top level.

Or maybe something more approaching that than what
we have now.

Finding things via bushy tree is, for at least me,
DIFFICULT, sometimes impossible because I soon tire
of hunting around, forgetting where I have been,
forgetting how I got to that interesting page
five minutes ago.

We see so many long indexes on the net; maybe Lynx
should have one too.  (Maybe just an optional
ALTERNATIVE to the bushy-tree, being that tree
flattened out.)

And, as always, I remain confused by some of the
link-names on the H page, in that they don't
always tell me just what they lead to.  In trees,
total surprises are bad, since you'll likely never
again figure out how to get back there...

just my opinion <s>.
