[thelist] Running Lynx on OS X

First off, the Apple website just links to to same version you find on 
osxgnu.com (in reference to the person who told you to download the 
"official' version from Apple's website).

If you want a clickable link, open up the Applescript "Script Editor" 
program and put in the following:

tell application "Terminal"
	do script "/usr/local/bin/lynx"
end tell

Save it as an application, /et voila/!

If anyone out there wants this but doesn't want to tinker with the 
Applescript editor, I would be happy to email the "opener" app to them 
-- but it's really very easy to do. :)
