I've changed the default page[1], that a new tab visits, into
"about:blank".  Now you can create an empty new tab by
`G C-a C-k RET' or the `New Tab' button of the `Tab' menu bar.
It might not necessarily be your taste, though.  The patch is
attached (you can get it from CVS of course).

[1] The `w3m-new-session-url' variable controls the default page.

I can connect to Gmane but it appears not to be working at least
for this list nowadays.  The last article is of the end of June.
