Not so good. Use lynx or opera. I set lynx up with links (graphical and
text-only) as a downloader to view sites that need tables. Is there a way
to use lynx as a downloader (external program) in links?
I set both lynx and links to use mplayer on streaming audio, and zgv as
viewer (or xli in X). Links is set to use pmail at mailto:, could not
figure out lynx.

See fastmail.fm No need to download, probably faster if you use dialup.
gmail yahoo mail pobox.sk Search on 'free mail'. ISPs also offer it.

Send $1 to sdf.lonestar.org to read mail with mutt or pine and reply
online, or use webmail (slow).
