I think so too.

There is a simple reason: I could not implement asynchronous version.

Mr. Sugawara has already posted his asynchronization patch in
[emacs-w3m:01230] and [emacs-w3m:01235].

Anyway, I'd like to see your implementation.  Please post your patch
to this mailing list.

Could you try M-n (w3m-copy-buffer)?  It is the command to generate
new w3m-mode buffer.

I don't like multi buffer style like W3.  It opens too many buffer to
select the other buffer when moving buffer.
