Dillo is small and lightweight, but it's also more limited than HighWire (no CSS and no frames/iframes). If we want to spend efforts on porting a web browser it should atleast have some advantages over the stuff we already have.

How realistic is it to port WebKit or Gecko to MiNT? I wouldn't mind writing the GUI for a web-browser if we have a good rendering engine available.
