There are several open sourced libs that can help out with most of those.  OmniGroup has Apple's WebCore available for download, I think that should be the backend for both the web browser and the development tool. There is also a _javascript_ interface there too.

This has been looked into, unless Omni recently changed the license, you cannot distribute modified source code.  Since the source code would have to modified to work on GNUstep, there is no point in it.

Hmm. I don't have an OS X System to look at the license in .dmg files, but WebCore seems to be licensed by Apple under the LGPL:
http://developer.apple.com/darwin/projects/webcore/
(Apple's page implies that it would also be applicable to the _javascript_Core.)
So I doubt that these will be available under a different license from Omni (in which case someone should look into how that was possible).  Now that doesn't help us with any of the other Omni packages.

Anyway, it has been noted here before, a WebCore port for GNUstep is in progress:

Took a look at the licensing of _javascript_Core... The framework is a combo of  the KDE Project's KJS library from release 3.0.2, and I couldn't find a specific license statement (be nice, it's late, i Googled...) and PCRE, with the PCRE License.
