Type Ahead Support

w3m-type-ahead.el (available at https://alioth.debian.org/project/showfiles.php?group_id=30594) can be used to add type-ahead functionality (as seen, for example, in Mozilla and related browsers) to w3m-mode. After loading w3m and w3m-type-ahead, it can be switched on as a minor mode in w3m-mode buffers using:

 (add-hook 'w3m-mode-hook 'w3m-type-ahead-mode)

By default, this binds / to w3m-type-ahead and M-/ to w3m-type-ahead-regexp. With these, incremental searching limited to the text associated with links can be done. Use a prefix argument of C-u 2 or C-u C-u to create a new session.
