       links is known to work on Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris,  IRIX,  HPUX,
       Digital Unix, AIX, OS/2 and BeOS.  Port for Win32 is in state of
       beta testing.

       Can't connect to some FTP servers (Novell, NT). Connection stays
       in "Request sent" state.

       Frames  don't  work  if there's more frames with same name. Turn
       them off in such case.

       You can't upload large files; it takes _lots_ of memory.

       You shoudn't press '^Z' when you are in a viewer
