One thing I have been considering doing for a while is using CEF3 to
create a WebView implementation which can be used within GNUstep.   I
did something similar to this when I was working on Winamp for Mac and
it worked very well... so I think it's a viable solution for creating
a WebView class that can be used from any application.

Lately I haven't had a lot of time to do this.  There is an
experimental effort using something called "Berkelium" in GAP @
gap/libs/Berkelium.   Berkelium has a similar architecture so it would
be easy to retrofit my code there to use CEF3.

I don't know if this helps... but it is something along the same lines.
