Lynx seems slow


Whenever I run Lynx it seems to be really slow compared to Firefox. On average it takes about 20 seconds through Lynx to even access Google. While in Firefox it maybe takes 2 tops. I do not know why this is. I'm running Core 3 with an Apt-get install of lynx.

Maybe Firefox uses more caching? Dunno for sure.

I prefer Links over Lynx.

Or maybe it's just that I'm a whore for anything with a GUI.
