    IMO, a text browser would slow you down quite a bit. It's not the speed of the pc, it's how fast the user can assimilate the data. I read a LOT, and do a ton of surfing on the web, and have never had a need for one.

    You can try Lync, but take a look at the wikipedia page first. I think you may be confusing it with something else.

    IMO it would. I find it less user friendly than the actual web.

    Add the web developer plugin for Firefox and that allows you to turn off images, CSS etc on a site by site basis.
