Web Access via Terminal in Ubuntu 11.10

Most people using Linux just wonder about the ease of use in terminal with the help of commands. Sometimes we wish if we could use Internet too using terminal with such ease. Well, yes it is possible to browse internet using terminal. The terminal can display everything HTML. And heres how we can do it.

Open your terminal and type the below command.

$ sudo apt-get install elinks

After the installation is complete type elinks in terminal to access Internet through terminal.
Below are some screen-shot of Google web-page in terminal.

Gmail webpage

This works faster than the any browser. Go on try out other sites with whole lot of configurations in the terminal that you can use to make it look pretty neat.
