You can, holding the SHIFT key.

A breath of fresh air...
Of all browsers I have tried none, truly none, can face up to the speed, simplicity and niftiness of Links. Thought you cannot copy text in Links and some very few pages do display incorrectly in X11 mode this browser is simply the best.

ELinks on old handhelds
I've been searching for a decent text web browser to run on old handheld systems with 21 x 16 character displays, and ELinks seems to be a good candidate. However, I'm running into some problems. To your knowledge, has anyone attempted this before? If there is any information out there about this, it would make my life a lot easier :)

links
For a lot of people, running X is something they only feel the need, or want, to do when they need to use a web browser. Links saves the day for people who wish to stay in their sacred consoles. Setting the proper associations in your .links.cfg file to console based multi-media applications such as seejpeg, mpg123, etc.. along with the built-in page rendering capabilities links offers is truely a breath of fresh air.

Sure, apologies; the situation was different when I wrote that comment.
However, ELinks (now Enhanced/Extended Links) is still available for those, who
honour higher configurability, sane cookies support, authentication support etc
rather than javascript or graphics support (altough that's being prepared as
well).

A great piece of software
A real pleasure to use, even statically linked on my old 486 (kernel 2.0.32). Nutscrape has disappeared hooray!

2.0pre3 version has debugging code still enabled
For all of you who wonder why there's garbage text all over, debug code was left enabled in the 2.0pre3 version.

To disable it, there are 2 files you need to edit (do a grep -r "debug" . in the root directory to see all references to debug). The macros idebug() and debug() need to be #undef'd and then #define'd to nothing. The code has been commented out, so it's just a matter of uncommenting it.

Also, graphics don't seem to work at all in framebuffers, unless I've done something wrong :(

Hi,

just to notify you all, main links branch is not actually maintained, as Mikulas has no time for it now. Instead, elinks (experimental links) branch is maintained and bugfixes and new features get there. Despite its name, its STABLE branch should be really stable and usable.

I suggest you to use elinks instead of links, as it has many bugs fixed and it's just always better to use maintained software instead of unmaintained one ;-).

See freshmeat's elinks record or experimental branch of links record if you want to check it out :).
