It is _a_ way of viewing pages as linearized. A very useful tool, but you
could alternatively install Lynx on your system and use it; available from

Linearization can be performed in somewhat different ways. Lynx (and Lynx

different from a purely sequential presentation (e.g., as speech), since
line breaks matter. Lynx also has some elementary table support.
