Nice stuff. Works with dillo browser. Not so much with emacs-w3,
because it cannot guess what is a type of data delivered from your
server - I am asked a question, give it a hint "text/html" in response
and then your page loads without any further problem. After initial
page is loaded, search went ok, no problem. HTH.

I actually used Altavista in 90-ties. Compared to today, it feels so

Like Button!
