Hello w3m friends in Japan and all over the world,
(BI recently installed the bleeding-edge Debian Linux
(Bkernel (3.17.1) and got some new Emacs-software in the
(Bbargain. I have Emacs 24.4 and w3m-el-snapshot
(B1.4.538+0.20141022-1 (that one according to aptitude;
(B`w3m-version' is w3m/0.5.3+debian-19).
(BNow, instead of the old "you are leaving a secure
(Bpage" (pseudo-quote) in the metabuffer, I get a red
(Bpopup in the middle of the screen.
(BFirst, it doesn't seem to work 100% because it just
(Bflashes by: if I didn't see it once a day (when I log
(Bin) I wouldn't have been able to deduct its purpose.
(BSecond, I think part of what makes Emacs so appealing
(Bis that it doesn't come with popups and all that, that
(Bthe buffer is a quiet and still-though-reactive place.
(BThough what you did is hardly Windoze Me, I can't see
(Bany reason to do it, not the least because of Emacs
(Busers having had their eyes trained to do all
(Binteractive I/O in the metabuffer and nowhere else.
(BHow can I configure it so to make it behave the old
(BPS. I have done lots of w3m hacking. Feel free to use
(Bwhatever you find interesting. Or likewise enlighten
(Bme if something is already configurable off-the-shelf
(Brendering some of that stuff obsolete :) (Especially
(Bthe search stuff I'm very happy with.)
