Interesting. I find it _very_ useful. Does that mean you have defined a
lot of custom commands for manipulating URLs in Gnus Article buffer? Or
do you never feel a need to e.g. quickly copy the link location?

I don't see why we couldn't get the complete same right click menu as in
emacs-w3m. I'd especially like to have "Copy Link Location" (and I hope
it will also work in article headers -- I often find myself wanting to
copy the Gmane permalink, for example); jidanni mentioned in a recent
report the need for "Open in External Browser"; I can also see how "Save
Link as..." could be useful. In short, why not just provide the whole of
emacs-w3m right click menu?

Many thanks,
