   this could be a great advantage for Lynx:
   there are many slow servers & big files to fetch/download.
   best would be a command  Fetch/Download_in_Background ,
   which you would substitute for the usual  Right-arrow  when needed.
-- can it be that difficult to fix up Lynx to allow background working?
