w3m text browser question


hi ,

i just used w3m , the text browser ! i must say it's quite impressive ... i can work in console n surf the net at the same time without switching b/w windows !!!

however 1 feature that i could not find is clicking buttons .... like when i sign into my yahoo mail (which uses a button to compose mail ) .... w3m does not see it as a link

... do u know if there is a way to get over that or any other text browser that can handle this ???

thanks
a

Becuase w3m doesn't knows how to handle javascripts, probably you are going face trouble in browsing most websites.

btw. you could try out other text browsers like:
lynx
elinks

I dont know whether they will help you or not, but you should give a try.

Well, links2 doesnīt have a full support for java script. But usually buttons works.

Which version exactly are you using?
