Why, in the world, some one would use Lynx as a browser in our Day and Age
I used Lynx in order to test Lynx :P It's also a useful backup check every now and then. This time around, it told me that my text-as-image links work perfectly well in a text-only browser (meaning that they would also work if the server happened to eat the relevant image file); it simply shows the alt text.
before it gets to UA or IP check
Gosh. What has it already said that a human would never say? Or is it the bare fact that the user-agent comes at the end of the headers instead of immediately before or after the Host line? (I checked three other browsers to make sure the php function wouldn't make the site explode. That's after I worked out how to get all the header logs in one place instead of a separate one in each directory. Ouch.)
Lynx doesn't seem to be very popular with robots though. The only one that crops up in current logs is a Lithuanian at 78.158 that I finally blocked for appearances' sake.
