I've occasionally run edbrowse for that reason alone, in circumstances in
which starting an X session and invoking Iceweasel either wasn't possible at
the time or would have been more work.

For sites that use Javascript to validate forms, it's fine, but not for
anything more complex. If you need support for the DOM, XMLHTTPRequest, HTML 5
interfaces, etc., your options are Mozilla and WebKit.
