I'm not discarding, I'm saying that there is a lot of work.

If we are interested in non-steppy browsers, it's not hard to embed Chromium/Blink using CAF, nor is it hard to just be silly and reparent an X11 browser window. Or, well, just use a web engine inside its common host browser.

If we are discussing a port, presumably we see advantages to tight integration (themes, services, GS open/save dialogue, more?) and if so, we'd want something like a GS port of a browser.

WebKit is a good candidate, just, let's not present it as a lightweight project because it's anything but.

All right, point.

But KHTML still survives, doesn't it? And Blink, which is the
Chrome/Chromium fork, so presumably not OS X-dependant?

This is not my area of knowledge, so sorry for stating what is
probably very obvious and has been examined and disregarded  for good
