Is that how Vi users go when they hear Emacs?
Well, I don't know the answer to that but Lars has gone off to code up a browser of sorts for Emacs called Emacs Web Wowser. And you can read his post on his rationale for developing it. It's part of the gnus git branch for now.
Me, I stay off the text browsers unless I'm trying to script some automated downloads, where I use lynx.
