    Lynx Browser (on Mac)

    I downloaded the Lynx browser on my Mac but didn't have a clue about how to use it. I then downloaded it from Apple's website at http://www.apple.com/downloads/macos...ebbrowser.html

    When I double-click the file I downloaded it creates a new file that ends with bin.cpzg. When I double-click that file, it creates a new file that ends in dmz.bin - which is what I started with - and the cycle continues.

    The tutorials I've found so far assume you already have Lynx up and running, but I haven't even figured out how to install it, let alone open/start it.

    Any tips?

    Thanks.

    I'm told Stuffit Expander can properly unzip the .cpzg file when double-clicking doesn't do it right.

    I start Lynx in Linux from a terminal like this:

    Code:
    lynx www.thesiteyouwanttobrowse
    Since Mac and Linux are both Unix based, it might work.

    Thanks. I still haven't been able to install it, though. It ain't like Opera and Firefox.

    It aint like Opera or Firefox. It is a command line browser.

    This is a command line text only browser for those that have visual problems.

    If you have visual problems, how would a command line browser help over a normal browser with zoom or a TTS engine?

    Lynx is a browser Unix folks used on terminals where they had no GUI available.
