edbrowse is a reimplementation of /bin/ed, with some basic
differences (it uses Perl regular expressions) with the ability to
visit webpages and ftp sites. edbrowse performs basic transformations
on the html source to produce a readable representation. edbrowse
supports Forms, Frames, Netscape-style cookies, HTTPS
connections and JavaScript.
