    Default text only browser

    The pop-ups and pop behinds more than ever on firefox. Is there a simple text only browser on linux? Have kde 4.3.1 on my pc.
    Thanks,

    sure, been there forever, from a terminal command line type

    lynx [URL]
    or
    link [URL]

    URL can be as simple as (say) cnn.com or iht.com

    you can even do this and probably find many more, i don't know:
    lynx google.com/search?q=linux+text+only+web+browser

    happy hunting..

    And once you like the lynx style of viewing web content you may also consider 'alpine' for viewing mail and 'pinfo' for viewing info pages.

    Sounds to me like you're addressing the problem entirely wrong, try using Adlock Plus and NoScript for firefox and pop-ups will be history.
