A better definition of "modern browser" would be:

"A browser that supports the latest versions of the available, 
well-established technologies and standards".

Therefore, if Lynx has JavaScript support and if it supports its 
well-established accessibility features, then Lynx is a modern browser, 
independently of its release date.

If Lynx has no JavaScript support, or if it has no support for JS 
accessibility features that exist for years, then it is not a modern 
browser, even if it was released yesterday.

Using the transportation analogy: a horse born today is not a modern 
vehicle; a 15-year old car (probably) is.
