Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Being a text-only browser that runs inside the terminal makes Lynx very lightweight and minimal since it doesn't need much resources to run and too many things to render (pictures, videos etc...).
Pro Useful for web developers
Since lynx does not load images or any graphical content (just like crawlers) one of these could be to test their website and see how search engine crawlers 'see' each page. Lynx can be used by web developers to test their websites for different reasons and applications.
Con Text-based only
Lynx is a text-based only web browser and it's the oldest browser still in use. Being text-only, it's not very useful anymore outside some niche use cases.
Con Now under the KDE umbrella
Qupzilla is now discontinued and renamed to Falkon. It will also now be a part of KDE and will probably need more dependencies like kde-frameworks in the future.
Con Bookmark management not the strongest part
It often requires quite a lot of clicks to add and remove bookmarks.
Con Same security-holes as Chrome
Falkon uses the same browser engine as Chrome, meaning it has the same security-holes as Chrome. Chrome is a big target for hackers (being the most commonly used browser). A webpage that will hack Chrome will likely hack Falkon.
