Not for me, as I'm more used to Lynx, but from my logs (and I
don't have so many hits) I could notice some people using the
0.96 binary.

I'd volunteer if I were a programmer, which is a prerequisite
since maintainers are expected to fix any Cygwin problems. The
Links authors don't seem to care - see UNSUPPORTED in

The good thing is that recent Links and Links 2 build OOTB on
Cygwin with 2 minimal changes, and don't appear to have any

Anyway, I'm still unsure what'd be better to replace it, if
Links 2 2.1pre14 or ELinks 0.4.2. ELinks has many advantages
(and many more in 0.5pre) but lacks the minimal JavaScript
support and graphical frontend - see
. The problem with Links 2 running with the graphical frontend
is that accentuation doesn't work (at least for me), only on
Linux with the frame buffer. So, while it's great to have
images and such, something is wrong, and for now I'm going to
investigate it.
