If I understand you correctly, this has been in lynx for some time.
It is called the visited links page, and is separate from the history
page. It is bound by default to the "V" key.

Actually I think it's the backspace key (using doug's 2.8.3rel).

Anyway, my main problem with lynx is I can lose work by simply
running off the front of a text-entry field by mistake. I realise
this is where the pureist say I should be using an external editor,
but as far as I know, this doesn't work correctly for the Win32 port.

It appears to me that most of the underlynig structure for a complete
tree-based Histry list is in place; and just needs a front-end. What
I mean is that one should be able to go forward in the tree, as well
as back (already if you are lucky, you can retrace the trail of links
you followed to get back to the page you were working on...).

Although I am willing to do the modifications myself, I won't have
time until december at the earliest, and more likely you won't see
anything for about 6 months. (I haven't even read though the code

Just Posting this to clarify my previous post. If any body has any
history list suggestions (or documentation) feel free to send them at
your leisure.
