Comment (by jidanni):

 Everybody knows about $BROWSER.

 $ w3m -dump https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Environment_variables |
 grep -C 2 BROWSER

   • BROWSER contains the path to the web browser. Helpful to set in an
     interactive shell configuration file so that it may be dynamically
     depending on the availability of a graphic environment, such as X:

 if [ -n "$DISPLAY" ]; then
     export BROWSER=firefox
     export BROWSER=links
