URI Passing in Elinks

URI passing allows a frame, link, or tab in elinks to be opened in another browser (say, Firefox, or Konqueror). It can be quite helpful when dealing with those sites that have not yet embraced the Any-Browser philosophy, or for which image-viewing (either consol- or X-based) does not work.

There are two ways to enable URI passing in elinks, the menu way, and the editor way. I'll be using the editor way here....

Code:
set mime.extension.jpg="image/jpeg"
set mime.extension.jpeg="image/jpeg"
set mime.extension.png="image/png"
set mime.extension.gif="image/gif"
