@chapter Command Line Usage
It can be convenient to start eww directly from the command line. The
@code{eww-browse} function can be used for that:
emacs -f eww-browse
@end example
This also allows registering Emacs as a @acronym{MIME} handler for the
@samp{"text/x-uri"} media type. How to do that varies between

-f eww-browse %u"}.
