google looping!


I don't know when it began, but I was made aware that Google
search is looping, thanks to Jidanni.  An easy workaround to
avoid it is to set `w3m-use-refresh' to nil, or to set
`w3m-user-agent' to that of a popular web browser[1].

The cause of the looping is that Google specifies the REFRESH
meta tag for zero seconds in every search result[2], and
emacs-w3m respects it by default.

What do you think about the best (or a better) way for emacs-w3m
to fix the problem?  What I think is to ignore the REFRESH meta
tag for only Google.
