Somebody did this a few years ago, I think.  But it seems a shame not
to ride on Apple's coattails with WebKit.  After all, they have the
manpower for QA and development, and plenty of web developers check
that their stuff works in Safari.

I was working on a CoreFoundation implementation, but I hear that
WebKit is totally abandoning Cocoa, so I'm not sure it makes a
difference now. :-(

I think Gecko and libwww are poor choices, personally.

poor choices but the only available ones. and they can be improved.

Maybe we should try doing both. Like what i was told in an extreme
programming seminar, go ahead and fail.

i would like to try libwww again. but then the complexity of it all
makes me look for a simpler alternative not just to the browser but
the whole www.

things i hate about my linux pc:

1. it takes more than a second to boot up
2. keeps asking about filenames and directories
3. does not remember what i was working on yesterday
4. does not remember all the changes i have ever made
5.cannot figure out necessary settings by itself
