Interesting!  "No Gnus v0.4" brings me to the Gmane page, and
your e-mail address brings me to the Gmail chat room.  On the
other hand, Netspace and IE bring me to the page showing the
search result.

I guess Firefox inquires of some search engine the given words
and visits the url which appears in the beginning of the result.
If they are all of what Firefox does, it doesn't seem to be very
hard to make emacs-w3m do so.  If we have time. ;-)
