that's not the functionality that I want.
In my opinion one of the greatest features of elinks that make it better than links2, glinks and links-hacked is that you can browse internet like this:
1. open elinks
2. press 'g' to get url box
3. type 'g keyword' in url box to start google search ( just an example, it can be anything you want)
4. press 'g' again and type 'dsl' to go to DSL Homepage
5. press 'g' and type 'fm' to go to freshmeat
6. and so on
You can set many shortcuts like the ones above, they can be set to get you to a site or can accept additional parameter, to create personalised search engines. You can get the same feature in Firefox ( i guess ) and in Opera 9. It's like 'search box' in address bar but IMHO it's better because you have faster access to many search engines and don't have to select different one each time you use 'search box' .
OK, this is getting too long even for an off-topic I guess
I've read that in links-hacked you can get similiar functionality with 'links lua' but can't get it to work
PS. And of course I still prefer vim.
