I know the authors a bit, though I've never met them in person.
clock is the login name of Petr Kulhavy, one of the principle authors of links.

So I think the URL mentioned is ``the one true links.''

But it's not important which one will be used.
I beleive many improvements migrate both directions.

And it seems to have some problems.  When I go to a complex page, eg. mailman
page of holded messages, then uparrow won't get me to the top, it goes in
a weird cycle.
Though the configuration language has improved, I had problems to find the
documentation for it.

Red Hat also packages elinks, I'm actually currently using elinks, not links.
