emeLFM - gui (best I could find)
MC - term
Sylpheed (GTK based) Highly recommended!
vim (slowly adapting to it)
Dillo (keeps getting better)
links -g (good SEO tool)
DFM or ROX (I prefer DFM)
I'm always looking out for other lightweight apps, so if you have any suggestions please post.
I had been using Krusader instead - but not any more.
My only recent discovery is 'Relax' (actually found it months ago but never got round to using it)
Command line only, but it analyses a log file pretty quick and spits out a nice report of search engine referrers and key phrases. Very big search engine list.
What is "links"? (trust me, a search on Google was not much use here:))
I've got Outlook on my machine, yet given the choice I always boot out of windows, reboot into linux and use these two babies to access e-mail and newsgroups.
PAN is the only newsreader that got 5/5 for some test - sorry can't be more specific than that - but it's impressive all the same, check out the web site for more info.
BTW, don't suppose anyone knows of a lightweight link checker for Linux? Also any lightweight apps out their for finding img tags without alt attributes? Thx in advance.
For link checking something in Perl would be easiest, or use lwp-download/wget for one offs...
Links is the browser I was talking about here [webmasterworld.com]. It is a good alternative for an old system. It is also a great SEO tool, here's why:
It lets you set the UA to what ever you want.
It lets you manipulate the referrer to what ever you want, or set it to no referrer, or url self referring.
You could actually see the page source of the page you are currently viewing, including posted pages -- it doesn't regrab the page for the source.
It allows you to view the server's header.
I'm going to have to try PAN...
Sylpheed has always felt zippy to me, though it will hang if it is waiting for a response from a server -- it doesn't have the ability to multi-thread, but I could live with that.
There are some RPMs of it at rpmfind.net, and .debs for all the Debian levels.
I'm using KMail for mail client, QT is a lot better than GTK, IMHO. Also used pine, mozilla and Sylpheed.
For downloading wget is the best, I also tried nt but it looks weird and behaves weird.
