You can search Google.com from the Linux command line without using a CLI web browser like lynx or Elinks. All you need is the curl and html2text packages installed. Then you issue the following command:
curl -A Mozilla http://www.google.com/search?q=Linux |html2text -width 80
where you can replace Linux with another keyword of your choice. The results will be displayed in your console application with a width of 80.
