You think it's debatable whether being unable to use to Yahoo or SourceForge or do any e-commerce is crippling? Wow.

Getting a binary up this quickly is quite convenient.

Yeah, but if it doesn't do what one needs, it's pointless.

To add any ssl functionality to lynx requires a compile and always has in my experience.

I guess you're referring to the licensing discussion?

Even without ssl you still get that 'real view' of the web, scriptable, customizable and fast.

But without any access to hundreds of important web sites. Not exactly a selling point. Unless you think that SSL is evil and any web site which uses it sucks, but I've never heard of anyone who believes that.

A non-SSL Lynx is a crippled Lynx. Can't even log in to Yahoo, let alone do any online shopping. Nice PoC, though.
