w3m – a text-based web browser as well as a pager like `more’ or `less’. With w3m you can browse web pages through a terminal emulator window (xterm, rxvt or something like that). Moreover, w3m can be used as a text formatting tool which typesets HTML into plain text.

It supports tables, frames, cookies, authentication, SSL connections, color and inline images on suitable terminals, and almost everything except JavaScript. It can also be used with mouse in an xterm or in a gpm-driven console.

The project was under development by Akinori Ito and team members.
