Default Limitations of Console Web Browsers

Hello,

What are the limitations of console web browsers? Obviously they generally don't allow for the display of graphics (I think w3m can handle this through the framebuffer). Nor do they run flash (that may be a plus for some people). Can they handle javascript (well, at least that which doesn't require a mouse)? Can they stream audio? Do they handle css? frames? tables? What about https? Would I be able to order stuff from Amazon or fill out government forms on lynx? etc., etc.
