First release: 2000
Netrik – an advanced and simplistic text-mode WWW browser, similar to w3m or Lynx, focusing on a convenient user interface.
Netrik is Free Software published under the GNU General Public License (GPL), version 3.0 (or later), which essentially states that you can do anything with the program and its source code, as long as the result passes on the same freedoms.
Netrik runs on GNU-based systems such as GNU/Linux and GNU Hurd; and with a little extra effort, probably also on other modern UNIX-like systems.
Netrik has quite limited functionality compared to some other text mode browsers, confining its usefulnes as a generic web browser — however, it does come with some unique features too, which often make it more convenient to use in cases where it does work. (Mostly documentation in HTML format; and also some select sites on the internet, such as certain news sites for example.)
