Links is an alternative to Lynx. If you are stuck in a text mode and need to use a browser, I think "links" is friendlier and easier to use. With Lynx, I often find myself confused and "stuck" - the ESC key in Links turns a menu system on and off; very easy to understand. Though what I usually use Lynx for is something entirely different: just to get a quick ascii dump of a page. For that use, Lynx defaults to including a list of links, and I don't think Links even has that as an option.
Links and Elinks aren't necessarily the same thing, although they are on my RedHat box. You can find Elinks at https://elinks.or.cz/ and Links at https://artax.karlin.mff.cuni.cz/~mikulas/vyplody/links/
