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.
