The input area of the search box is not visible in w3m or emacs-w3m. So, it's impossible to go to a specific page (by name) in these text-mode browsers.
In some other text-mode browsers, this area is visible: lynx-2.8.6-alt7.rel.2 , elinks-0.12-alt0.9 .
Does the problem persist?
Yes, the problem persists with w3m-0.5.3-alt1 . (But the search on the wiki works in elinks-0.12-alt0.11 , so it is in principle possible in console browsers.)
