Not necessarily. A good browser allows complete navigation with the
keyboard (although there's no single standard for that and IE, Mozilla
and Opera each implement this difefrently).

Actually, many web forums can do that, by means of session information
and/or cookies. But it does require the user to sign up, and login
before use. Compared to that, such functionality is more robust in a
decent news reader, but it's not impossible for a web-bassed forum.
