w3m is a free software/open source text-based web browser and terminal pager. It has support for tables, frames,SSL connections, color, and inline images on suitable terminals. Generally, it renders pages in a form as true to their original layout as possible.
The name "w3m" stands for "WWW wo miru (WWWを見る)", which is Japanese for "to see the WWW" where W3 is a numeronym of WWW.
