Question Graphical browser without X

I have just (finally) succeeded in installing adsl on my linux machine. I have no X, and therefore am using the browser known as 'lynx'. However, I was wonderring if there is a graphical browser that does not require X? X is quite big for my machine, I don't have much hard drive space. Is there a graphical browser that does not use X? I don't want something complicated, just the ability to scroll more easily, select links with my mouse and view frames. It doesn't even have to be fully graphical. Seeing images would be nice, but not necessary. Oh, and VBScript/Javascript support would be appreciated too. Any ideas?

w3m has most of what you want, though you need svgalib or some such for the graphics to (sort of) work. I love it, though I use mozilla in X for surfing for the most part. Scroll, mouse, frames, even tabs, images, etc. Not sure about scripts.

I also use links, I think it formats pages better than lynx. Plus, if you turn on the color in links, it doesn't make browsing the internet in text all that bad.
