Yeah. I would need rest too. And btw We are here in winter so staying
too long is having the temperature drop.

I am going to try this. As soon as I could. Normally I read something on
Saturdays. But I could try rendering with w3m-find-file (with the
commented line on w3m-rendering-buffer).

I am not sure this is the case. But fixing long standing bugs helps a
lot of people. As I have told You I read news from within emacs using my
mailclient which ends opening the rss link on w3m. So probably during the day I open more pages on w3m than on
a moderm web browser. From my workflow that's the main use I do of w3m.

Inside my head. I think everybody does this daily.
