I like this. I've been waiting for a nice simple browser in Emacs LISP
for ages.

There is an immediate problem with the code you posted though. When I
do nero-browse-url it gets the url but doesn't switch to nero mode.

I had to switch to nero-mode manually.

The main thing about this seems to be some markup about how links and
things work. This is interesting because it means that lynx -dump is
not really necessary, the markup could be generated by XSLT for
example, or links -dump.

What do you think about pluggable renderers?
