I agree it's not easy to differentiate them, but at least let's try
not to let them "clash" with each other (like "lynx has good support
for tables" and "unlike lynx it supports tables") 0=)

Some possible sdesc could be:

lynx = "The first text-mode WWW browser"
links = "Improved text-mode WWW browser with support for frames"
elinks = "An extension of links, a text-mode WWW browser"

Maybe we could also point out that links and elinks are "alive", while
lynx' last release is in 2001.
