How can I enter websites via console?

Hi guys.
Well.. I'm not sure this is a question to ask here but I couldnt really decide what forum to put it in.
Is it possible to enter websites via the console ?
well that's not all.. after let's say I enter a website and that website requires to enter username and password.. you know like forums.. is it possible to enter those details via the console only?

just a side note: I'm not working on linux directly, I'm working via the console that run on a remote computer.. that might be different from working directly from the computer that runs linux.

Thanks a lot for your answers, it would really help me!

If you have a cli browser like links or lynx installed you can just do:
then use the arrows to get to the login box. With links you have to hit enter on the box to insert text. Quit both with q
