I agree that Conkeror is a good browser for emacs users, but I'd like to
add another browser to the discussion: uzbl [1].

It's not specially designed for emacs users (keybindings etc.), but
instead it uses by default vi-like bindings (but those can be modified.)

It uses the slogan that it adheres the UNIX philosophy, e.g. it does one
thing very good (rendering web pages using WebKit) and it delegates
everything else to other tools (downloads, cookies, bookmarks, history,
...), which could be elisp handlers.

IMHO, this approach makes it suited best for creating a browser *inside*
emacs, not just a browser designed *for* emacs users.
