Originally a browser for Acorn RISC OS.

(Another niche OS and desktop I follow. This is the Linux version of
the desktop:

http://rox.sourceforge.net/desktop/ )

It's a neat little browser but it doesn't support _javascript_, so it's
very limited on the modern web.

However isn't WebKit FOSS and specifically designed for macOS?

https://webkit.org/

That is this year's gsoc project.

WebKit's Mac port uses loads of APIs that are available only under macOS, too. It should not come as a surprise that it heavily relies on Core Animation, for example, if you compare CA with some of the more recent additions to CSS (animations, transforms, etc).

Consider how that relates to the amount of work to make it even compile...
