Yeah, this is my view as well.  Let's make things pretty and functional 
with the advanced technology, but as long as the basics still work in 
eLinks and Lynx I'll be happy.

We actually have developers at that use eLinks with Bugzilla 
because they do their development work on remote machines and for 
whatever reason find it easier to run a browser on the machine they're 
shelled into than on their local machine.

eLinks actually supports Javascript, btw.  It doesn't do a very good job 
of it yet though.
