Surfraw: Shell Users' Revolutionary Front Rage Against the Web

About Surfraw

Surfraw provides a fast unix command line interface to a variety of popular WWW search engines and other artifacts of power. It reclaims google, altavista, babelfish, dejanews, freshmeat, research index, slashdot and many others from the false-prophet, pox-infested heathen lands of html-forms, placing these wonders where they belong, deep in unix heartland, as god loving extensions to the shell.

useful episode, thanks

Reminded me how much I used to love lynx. I cranked up surfraw and played with it a bit. Set it to invoke lynx rather than chrome and it works great.

Also inspired me to compare lynx, elinks, and links. Went back to my first love, lynx.

BTW, the captcha below is ludicrously illegible. I hate those things.

captcha are gone

You have a point and given that the captcha don't work anyway I got rid of them. Let's see how the spammers react.
