Thanks.  Does this require anything special from the browser used to

will Emacs's EWW do?

It needs to support JavaScript, and various modern features of
JavaScript.  It doesn't work in all web browsers, especially not web
browsers that are a few years old.

If people want to test it with different web browsers and report here
whether it works or not, that could go into the documentation

It is intended to "fall back" gracefully on older browsers or if
JavaScript is unavailable.  I just tried using Emacs EWW, and
that works about as well as the plain html version.

So it's not a bug if some functionally is missing. It is a bug if
documentation is unpleasant to use on any browser (though I might draw
the line at any browser older than html 4.x), and it is a bug if any
mainstream browser from the last few years doesn't have intended

That doesn't mean bugs will get fixed, of course.

Personally, I'm more likely to help with polishing the interface once
I can switch to using it for my own documents.  Right now texinfo-js
depends on peculiarities of the html generated by makeinfo, and that
should be fixed.  (I.e. makeinfo fixed to generate well-structured
html, and texinfo-js adjusted accordingly.)
