As far as I know the "Links" text browser is completely free software and does 
not rely on Webkit and Gecko.
It has some disasvantages as no support for Flash and Java. 
And are you sure webkit has not a free software version? I think it does.
If for privacy concerns, I belive both browsers will store cookies and browsing 
history by default.
