Well technically a limited support might be possible. Steve Yegge wrote a
be faced by the fact that Emacs display model is too limited for full HTML and
CSS rendering (Although work on WYSIWYG functionality will certainly help
improving what EWW/`shr.el' can render). So all in all it would require a lot
of work and yield very little in practical terms.
I think the main use case for EWW will be reading documentation written in
HTML, bug trackers, and other simple websites. None of which should really
worry about all the security and privacy implications.
If we want a "full browser experience" within GNU Emacs then the best bet is
probably the xwidget branch and embedding an existing rendering engine.
