ELinks is a feature-rich program for browsing the web in text mode. It is like enhanced Lynx and Links. The most noteworthy features of ELinks are:

* Lots of protocols (local files, finger, HTTP(S), FTP, IPv4/6 etc.) * Internationalized domain names * Persistent cookies, HTTP authentication and proxy authentication * Tabbed browsing, good looking menus and dialogs, and key-binding manager * History browsing and typeahead searches * Forms history and completion, and history in commonly used input dialogs * CSS support and support for browser scripting (Perl, Lua, Guile etc.) * Tables and frames rendering, and configurable color support * Compressed and background (non-blocking) downloads, and download resuming

This package is based on felinks fork, since original elinks seems to be no longer maintained.
