If you have it set up right, lynx is excellent for viewing graphics
from the web.  The external program to be spawned when it comes across
an image file is defined either in /etc/lynx.cfg or /etc/mailcap.
Both let you correlate a mime type with the appropriate external
program, so in my /etc/mailcap, I have:

  image/jpeg; display '%s'; test=test -n "$DISPLAY"

which means lynx will call 'display' to display jpeg image. This was
mostly done for me because debian sets up /etc/mailcap automatically.
I also have mailcap entries for a pile of image/ types, audio/mpeg,
application/msword, and a bunch of other stuff..
