... and links supports http_proxy, so that's a wash... :-)

My feeling is that it's pretty much a matter of taste which is better
(e.g. with keybindings -- I hate w3m's keybindings, especially the
`spacial' link navigation).

I've tried both and I _much_ prefer links.  It feels smoother, cleaner,
and less clunky than w3m, but as far as I can tell, has about the same
number of features.

Whatever the case, though, w3m certainly shouldn't just have been made
standard without some discussion.
