w3m is a World Wide Web (WWW) text based client.

Help is avaliable in English, German and Japanese. There is an option
menu which can be configured for the chosen lanugage.

It will display hypertext markup language (HTML) documents containing
links to files residing on the local system, as well as files residing
on remote systems. It can display HTML tables, frames, and images, and
supports tabbed browsing. In addition, it can be used as a "pager" in
much the same manner as "more" or "less". w3m can display images in
both the framebuffer, in supported terminals, and the X server.

Supported consoles for image display are st, urxvt (rxvt-unicode) and
termite (via a patch), including inside screen (untested with tmux).

Optional dependency: compface

(Compface converts 48x48x1 images to and from a compressed format. The
purpose is to allow the inclusion of face images within mail headers
using the field name 'X-face:'.)
