well if you login to your box threw ssh and then download lynx that should be what you need.

I think lynx is out there for most distribs

Links and elinks are better in my opinion. About ssh-compatibility: if you have X server running on client machine (there are even free ones for Windows..) and if you have X forwarding enabled in ssh client then - magic! - even graphical browser becomes ssh-compatible. It is eating bandwidth, though...

You can use an ssh tunnel with any browser and putty/ssh on the client... if all you need is secure browsing from a remote machine
