And that is terribly sad. I especially dislike sites
composed of Flash-only. Those sites are limiting their
potential audience by publishing browser-specific
GUI garbage. Or, perhaps their audience doesn't consist
of people who even _know_ what a text-only browser is.

True, i can view it fine in Mozilla. But, why should i
have to leave lynx to get information?

Agreed, but that is still software evolution. Evolution
covers bug fixes too :)
