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 original project appears to be inactive, while a currently maintained version exists and is packaged in various GNU/Linux distributions such as Debian and Fedora. This version is available from the repository of Debian developer Tatsuya Kinoshita.
Two forks of w3m add support for multiple character-encodings and for other features not in the original:
- Hironori Sakamoto's w3m-m17n ("m17n" stands for multilingualization)
- Kiyokazu Suto's w3mmee ("mee" stands for "Multi-Encoding Extension")
