I have just recently been trying to get my head around edbrowse, but I
can't figure out how to get much done. It seems like I have to use line
numbers everywhere and I'm not used to counting things all the time. I
haven't used ed for much, but I use vi (or clones thereof) all the time.
Is there a way I can learn without hours of trial and error. Just
reading google's homepage and performing a search is proving a bit
difficult. I have been working my way through the documentation, but
there seems to be some basic concept I'm missing. How do I just look at
the whole page without doing 1p, 2p, ... np and select links without
counting lines. Thank you for any tips.

I hate to be missing out on the *best* program.
