Using xxxterm to browse common websites such as google and craigslist


I am interested in learning how too use xxxterm to browse websites such as www.google.com and www.craigslist.org. I've installed xxxterm and would like to know how to navigate into a page's fill-in boxes. Any help will be much appreciated.

Thanks for your advice. But I wasn't able to find the particular information I needed, probably due to my impatience, even though I've had no trouble in learning most xxxterm keyboard shortcuts.

Can you give me some simple instructions on how to get into a fill-in box on any webpage?
Please excuse me my laziness.

I am not using xombrero, so I can't say if it works, but I would assume that you just use the i-key to get to the default input for the site and the use Tab/Shift-Tab to navigate to the input field you want.
