i wouldn't call it a "replacement" for man:
  1. it gets its pages online; man pages are on your machine and always available.
  2. you probably wouldn't want to remove the extensive information available in man pages
that said, it looks extremely useful (focused on usage examples) and seems to have a strong community.
trying it out now.

tl;dr: do not "replace" man.

Ate there real alternatives to `alias man=w3mman`?.

^ while that technically replaces the man command, it does NOT replace man pages themselves.
