Thanks for these elements (merged in the DebAx Virtual FAQ).

Do you think we should give a short idea of the differences between
those text-browsers, or simply give practical notes about them ?  Of
course we won't fall in infinite trolls, but it may help.  I've
picked :

- lynx (very used, ported on other platforms)
- links (does it really support javascript ? ; uses ncurses)
- w3m (with kind of "emacs spirit" ; provides an emacs-mode)

I wait for your adds on this (how are they speech-friendly for
example).  We sure may add/remove ones.
