w3m: Text mode browser

Really old school browsing...
I needed to convert a page of HTML to text on the fly, and one of the best tools Iíve found for that is w3m. Itís also a pretty good, if extremely basic, Web browser if all you need to do is read pages on the Web.

Why muck with a text-mode browser? Certainly not because itís full-featured. Firefox, Chrome, Konqueror, or Opera, any other modern browser will get you more bang for the buck than w3m ó though w3mís rendering speed is pretty impressive. But w3m has a few features that you wonít find in other browsers that make it worth having around.
