When the cursor in eww is over a link, how can I follow it? Right now I copy it with 'w', and run eww again, which is kind of cumbersome.

In the same venue, if I access the bookmarks with 'B', how can I follow it, without copying and pasting after running M-x eww?

  • Is using the mouse a valid option?

  • I'd prefer to use the keyboard. But I am also curious about how to use the mouse, since clicking on a link is also not working. Nov 30 '15 at 23:32
  • The snapshot developer GUI build of Emacs -- 25.1.50.1 -- works out of the box with eww and the mouse. What version of Emacs and OS are you using? It is bound to the function shr-browse-url, which you can use by placing the cursor on the link and evaluating that function -- i.e., M-x eval-expression RET (shr-browse-url) RET It is also interactive, so you could type M-x shr-browse-url

  • Yes, clicking is working. The connection was slow and I rushed to the conclusion that it was not. For bookmarks I have to Ctrl+click, but that's OK. Is the keyboard navigation supported? Nov 30 '15 at 23:39

    The eww-link-keymap shows that the return key is bound to eww-follow-link, so try that when the cursor is on a link. I don't use this library and have never played with bookmarks, so I'm not familiar with it. In an eww buffer, type M-x describe-mode RET and read through the keybindings that are listed in the help buffer.
