Links Browser is a low end browser (text or graphical) great for surfing the web especially if you want to avoid all that extra non-sense that comes with web pages today.

Pages & Images load extremely fast.

Open up any text editor and save this as links.sh
C++:
sudo apt-get update

wget http://links.twibright.com/download/links-2.16.tar.gz

tar xzvf links-2.16.* && cd links-2.16

./configure --enable-graphics

sudo make install

links -g doc/links_cal/calibration.html
Where ever you saved the sh file you will need to make it executable so open up a terminal in the location of where you saved it and type.
Code:
chmod +x links.sh
To run the script simply type
Code:
./links.sh
The script will ask you for the root password so be ready to enter that in.

Once that is done the calibration page will load with the browser & allow you to adjust your monitor settings, (I left my monitor settings as is).

Anytime you would like to use this browser just open a terminal and type

For the graphical version
g.png
Code:
links -g
Or for the non-graphical version
nog.png
Code:
links
Once in the browser to go to a url hit the G key and type web address in the box or just hit the ESC key and a menu will reveal itself allowing to learn more about the browser's functionality.
