ITP: surfaw

 Surfaw - Shell Users' Revolutionary Front Against the World wide web

(pronounced like `surfer' but with a really, really deep south draaawl)

  Surfaw provides a fast unix command line interface to a variety of
  popular WWW search engines and other artifacts of power. It reclaims
  google, altavista, dejanews, amazon.com, research index, slashdot
  and many others from the false-prophet, pox-infested heathen lands of
  html-forms, placing these wonders where they belong, deep in unix
  heartland, as god loving extensions to the shell.

  Surfaw abstracts the browser away from input. Doing so lets it get
  on with what it's good at. Browsing. Interpretation of linguistic
  forms is handed back to the shell, which is what it, and human
  beings are good at. Combined with incremental text browsers, such as
  links, w3m (or even lynx), and screen(1) a Surfaw liberateur is
  capable of research speeds that leave GUI tainted idolaters agape
  with fear and wonder.

Security-wise, NT is a server with a "Kick me" sign taped to it.
