Could you also explain the purpose of the 1st empty bracket expression [] in the 1st sed expression?

I understand most of what you're doing, but what does $!s/$/\\/ do?

comment Why doesn't putting elinks in background and then resuming with `fg` work reliably?
@etherfish Yes, CTRL-L does not fix the hanging problem. I'm also already using elinks inside tmux. The OS Shell file menu option is interesting, but pressing CTRL-Z would be better, since it's the standard way to escape.
