Never thought you’d write a browser, cos HTML is so passé

I wrote my first web browser in 95 on the Amiga. The fact that I didn’t have an internet connection didn’t stop me, but really it was a bad HTML viewer. Later in 1998 I revisited the idea for my introduction to C course and wrote it again, using raw Xlib. Then Mozilla was released as open source and really there wasn’t much need for me to do more.

But the world is a funny place and history often ends up repeating itself, so without further ado sit back watch this short movie

Yup, webkit inside clutter. Completely proof of concept at the moment hacked up using the GTK backend. Thanks to Alp, Pippin and everybody else everywhere…
