I presume you mean with LSMB, since this is the LSMB mailing list. I
only use and recommend Firefox with LSMB. A text mode browser, such as
those you list here, may or may not work. Even should it work, I would
personally find it "painful" to try to use LSMB with a text mode

In other instances, such as remote administration of a UNIX/Linux server
with no GUI, I do use text mode browsers. Mainly when I need to browse
to a sight to download patches on the server. These text mode browsers
work great for that purpose, but I would not enjoy using them as my
regular browser.
