Generally either I used lynx or lynx url-i-want-to-go-to and you'd get a text-based browser interface similar to most other text GUIs on the command line. The keyboard commands for all the typical browser functionality are on the bottom of the UI, so you press those keys for any action you want to take.

If I wanted to go to Indeed, I'd just do


and then put in whatever job I was looking for and hit ENTER. lynx handles HTML-to-text conversion pretty well to intuitively figure it out from there.
