In this post is shown how to pipe curl output to lynx. How can get the same with w3m?

I mean something like:

curl https://www.google.it | w3m

not:

curl https://www.google.it someFile.html && lynx someFile.html

    I haven't tried it to be sure, but the manual lists w3m -T text/html – Fox Jun 26 '17 at 18:36

w3m is a pager. So to force HTML interpretation of text on stdin, you need to ask for it explicitly:

curl https://www.google.it | w3m -T text/html

    You can also add the -dump flag to skip the pager and send the output to stdout or pipe it to something else. – ewatt Feb 13 '19 at 22:55
