There's also pinfo, which has more or less lynx-like bindings. The only
problem is that sometimes it can't find the target if it's buried deep;
"pinfo ls" for example fails.
My gripe with info is that it never seems to tell what i need, it just
tells everything else under the sun. But that's a writing issue...
