You could try this:

,----[ (info "(gnus)Customizing w3") ]
| File: gnus,  Node: Customizing w3,  Prev: Web Archive,  Up: Browsing the Web
| Customizing w3
| --------------
|    Gnus uses the url library to fetch web pages and Emacs/w3 to display
| web pages.  Emacs/w3 is documented in its own manual, but there are some
| things that may be more relevant for Gnus users.
|    For instance, a common question is how to make Emacs/w3 follow links
| using the `browse-url' functions (which will call some external web
| browser like Netscape).  Here's one way:
|      (eval-after-load "w3"
|        '(progn
|          (fset 'w3-fetch-orig (symbol-function 'w3-fetch))
|          (defun w3-fetch (&optional url target)
|            (interactive (list (w3-read-url-with-default)))
|            (if (eq major-mode 'gnus-article-mode)
|                (browse-url url)
|              (w3-fetch-orig url target)))))
|    Put that in your `.emacs' file, and hitting links in w3-rendered
| HTML in the Gnus article buffers will use `browse-url' to follow the
| link.

I don't think it would be hard to do something like that with emacs-w3m
either, and these days w3m is faster and better at rendering HTML.
