   Are you guys talking about rewriting Lynx in some OO language?  Rewriting
   parts of Lynx with a new design philosophy?

That's already being done. The project mnemonic, which probably many
of You know, intends to create such a browser (under GPL, too). It is
planned to have both a CLI driven U'Interface like lynx as well as
graphical UIs.

   Perhaps an even better idea is to let Lynx continue on it's path while
   spinning off a new project for those interested, using some OO language which
   is freely available on VMS/Unix/MSDOS-Windows and designing it do do
   the scrolling windows/better tables/other major rewrite features being

   That way, the new browser doesn't have the baggage of trying to add in
   code that is there because of the dozens, or more, hands that have touched
   it, and instead takes into account HTML 3.2 (and future versions), etc.

I fully support this. It would be great if people had the choice
between several free web browsers. Everyone could cose the on he/she
likes most. 

Shouldn't we concentrate again to further improve lynx?
