I think you read too much into that article about google using lynx.
'Up until now the bot (or "crawler") that Google used to index sites was based on a lynx browser. Which is to say it "saw" text.'
a lynx browswer? not the lynx browser?
Which is to say... what I really mean ...
It seems clear that the person who wrote it really has no idea and used the phrase "a lynx browser" to mean something that just "saw text".
Yeah, I think you're right, the author probably meant a text-based browser and not lynx...
