Indeed. Apparently since 7.2 (and without any notice ?). I
found the following post from a Lynx user:

Interesting thread. Some reasons:

"Because links (smaller) has been added."

"Lynx didn't handle frames. Links does."

It appears they moved to ELinks in 9.0 (?). IMO Petr Baudis and
others are doing a much better job (compared to Links and Links
2), so it's well deserved.

I still think they could remove some bloat and readd Lynx. A
lot of people still use Lynx or now both, but...
