Emacs/W3 is a text-based web browser for the GNU Emacs text editor, written primarily by William M. Perry and entirely in GNU Emacs Lisp. Emacs/W3 is part of the Sumo package for XEmacs, and the submodule for fetching a URL is currently part of the GNU Emacs CVS repository.

More current Emacs web browsers include an interface to w3m.

Dave Raggett was supported by Emacs/W3 and by tkWWW while working on a successor to HTML 2 called HTML+.[2]
