nothing is perfect
lynx doesn't render html as well as links - doesn't do tables or page layout all that well. links doesn't do password authentication.

Current links _has_ HTTP authentication support, but it is manually disabled in the source code, as it is buggy and needs a rewrite. If you want somewhat more stable HTTP authentication support, move to elinks (http://pasky.ji.cz/elinks/
) and check out HTTP_AUTH branch, which contains this support
However, please note that this support is still unstable and you may get into some problems occassionally. Please update frequently if you will use it, as more fixes may follow soon.
