Your remark does not bring new information. By "please elaborate", I was
inviting my correspondent to provide some facts on which an opinion could
be based, that is, more than the re-statement of an intuition or emotion...
Do you have some URL, pointer, flaw description, that could be verified?
`w3m' seems really speedy, and does reasonable work for tables, and at
least a little something for frames, so I would not like giving it up.
Let's see the real nature of the danger, and if there is anything serious,
if `w3m' could be salvaged -- it is most probably worth some effort! :-)
