For a text mode browser links is pretty useful

How can you tell if your website is usable by anyone? Well one of the simplest ways is to use a text mode browser. It gives you a good idea as to how easy it is to navigate without having to spend the effort getting in a UI designer at infinity$/hour just to tell you that your links should be purple, and not help you in the least bit.
links is a pretty damned good text mode browser. It makes it obvious if you’ve made a mess of the UI for navigating, which is always a good thing. It makes it obvious when you’ve forgotten to put the bloody ALT tags into all your images – like a good designer should. Spacer gifs are evil and must be stopped 🙂
