w3m uses the specified editor for any textarea. Input fields are
managed by providing an edit buffer at the bottom of the browser
- http://www.google.com/: hitting 'enter' on the search field moves
the cursor to the bottom of the screen, where one inputs the search
keyword(s). You can optionally specify emacs-style line editing
- http://twiki.iwethey.org/twiki/bin/view/Test/: selecting the 'edit'
link (after you're registered) gives the page's text in an edit box.
Entering this, your chosen editor opens.
If you don't want to register, try Meatball Wiki:
http://www.usemod.com/, which allows unauthenticated access.
w3m's configuration options are accessed by typing 'o' in a browser
session, and are presented in a clean fashion. Much cleaner than, say,
