Actually w3m does support cookies, SSL, and bookmarks. It's
quite a nifty program, and development seems swift...

I keep hearing about "competition", but to me Lynx
and w3m complement each other very nicely. If a page
doesn't look good in Lynx I'll simply go back and
press "." to call w3m. I'll either keep using w3m
(which has a pretty good Lynx keyboard emulation),
or simply quit back into Lynx. People who have
decided to choose one or the other are clearly
limiting their options and/or don't fully
understand the capabilities of these browsers.
