I'm sorry for being not clear of the docstring that I wrote.
You might probably find better explanations for the `q' command
and the `Q' command in the Info document:

M-x info RET d m emacs-w3m RET m Browsing Web Pages RET
m Going Back to Daily Hacking and/or Daily Writing RET

C-c C-w

M-x info RET d m emacs-w3m RET m Working with buffers RET

Put the following in your ~/.emacs-w3m.el file:

(setq w3m-make-new-session t)

and you can open a new tab by typing M-x w3m RET on a url string.
