I hope that this is not considered blasphemy by the Lynx developers.

But it doesn't have many of the nice features of Lynx.

Maybe you're interested in looking at the "links" source code and helping
with that effort -- since links already does some things better than lynx,
making links better would seem to be a better effort than rewriting Lynx.

the links homepage is
there's also a mailing list (low volume compared to this one).

So maybe you would want to help add features to links or make its source
code more readable (add comments, etc).
