I just installed emacs-w3m, and I'm really impressed by how snappy and
fast it is, and how nice the rendered html is.
However, there were two things that I found really annoying as a naive
1) Binding the left/right/up/down keys is something that few other
Emacs modes do, and is highly surprising. If I want to move point
down, I would guess that 97% of the users would naturally hit
`down'. When the cursor doesn't move down, then that's... odd.
I would humbly suggest that you leave those keys alone.
2) emacs-w3m seems to be a bit too inquisitive. Is it really
necessary to ask "You are leaving secure page. Continue? " every
time you leave a secure page? Has anybody ever answered "n" to
that question? If you're afraid that the user doesn't know whether
they are on a secure page or not, then I'd suggest displaying this
in a more obvious way then a few pixels being red on the menu bar.
Just first impressions. :-) I'm otherwise overjoyed at being able to
really use Emacs for browsing the web.
