Because the default keymap of emacs-w3m is designed to simulate the
key bindings of original `w3m' command, left/right/up/down keys are
assigned to commands to jump anchors.

Actually, I had been also annoyed with it, and wrote the following
equation in ~/.emacs:
(setq w3m-key-binding 'info)
This equation make the keymap of emacs-w3m simulate Info mode, which
is more familiar to Emacs power users.
Unfortunately, because the number of users who use the above setting
is quite small as far as I know, I cannot take it as default.

It sounds a good idea, and I am going to consider it.

I am very glad to hear that, and welcome suggestions and patches.
