Lynx highlights links on a Web site to make it easier for you to find them.
When you first see a screen, the link nearest to the top of the page is
highlighted. You can use the arrow keys to follow or move between links.
The down-arrow key takes you to the next link on the page, and the up-arrow
key takes you to the previous link. The left-arrow key allows you to follow a
link backwards to the previous page; this is similar to the Back button on a
normal browser. The right-arrow key follows the current link, taking you to
the next page. The spacebar loads the next page.
