Strange w3m screenshot

I tried the w3m tex­t-­mode web brows­er. It sud­den­ly start­ed dis­play­ing im­ages in­side my kon­sole win­dow!

How the heck did that hap­pen??? Not even the w3m web­page sug­gests it can do that :-)

And yes, that's just a plain old kon­sole (it works on xter­m, too), and I am run­ning w3m-0.3.2.2-5

Hehe, priorities are weird. Javascript and inline images, but no frames :-)

Sure it can. There is a package that adds some plugin to w3m to use X decoration-less windows to put images over the xterm window. So actually you are looking at several windows at once, but you just don't notice, as they push the little image windows around when you scroll the w3m content. This is a rather cute and fun hack, I think :-)
