There is only one case where w3m fails me, and that is
http://www.sj.se, to se when the trains come and go.
Everything else I can do with text-only. I think it is
JavaScript that is lacking, a technology I don't
respect anyway. (Other people may have other needs, of
course.)

Even accursed YouTube I don't have to use that way.
First w3m to get the URL, then youtube-dl to get the
movie file. Browser GUI, YouTube GUI, dependence on the
Internet, all bypassed.

But, I think nowadays there actually are Emacs browsers
that can show pictures. (If anyone passes the sj.se
test, I'd give it a try.)
