Surfraw: Shell Users' Revolutionary Front Rage Against the Web
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,
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.
