On Linux I used to use pure text internet browsers in the terminal. I need one for Android, perhaps in an app. From the US, I'm trying to access the Russian internet like http://en.kremlin.ru/ and all the sites take like 5+ minutes to load and I figure if I used a pure text browser it would take less time.

    What comes to mind (not tried, just brain-storming) is using Termux and install Lynx in there. Provided they have that package.

1 Answer 1


I figured it out. First I installed Termux, which is like a Linux terminal in Android. For that I used F-Droid by going here, installing the F-Droid client, and then installing Termux. Then I followed these instruction to install the web browser.
