If I

lynx beforeitsnews.com

then I can't see the page because it needs a JavaScript compatible webbrowser.

Are there any text-based webbrowsers that supports JavaScript?:

  • Isn't that basically any browser with just CSS/Images disabled? You want the DOM to be loaded as it is the only way you'll be able to have JS functioning properly. – Niklas Jun 19 '11 at 11:05

    @Niklas Not if you don't have a GUI running. – Daniel Beck Jun 19 '11 at 11:32
  • See also: Command line browser with js support – unor Jul 28 '16 at 14:31

Based on the comments under this article (which is old but provides some good pointers):

  • elinks - experimental javascript support (as of 2005 - may be better now?)

  • links2 - supports javascript and pipelining and image display without X

  • links-hacked - ssl and some javascript support
