Comments on 2008-10-05 w3m for OSX

Unless you specifically wanted to test w3m under OSX, I’d recommend using a VM and a linux image. Vmware Fusion is pricey, but methinks there are other free vm engines.

I have fusion, and keep a linux image handy for trying out such things.

Hm, interesting point. Then again, I feel likt it ought to work and I’m having this geek urge to figure out why it doesn’t work as advertized!

Actually, I’m giving emacs-w3m a try now. It really looks spiffy!

Ah, I think the problem is that not only is w3m not interested in remembering cookies – emacs-w3m is just as reluctant!
