I'd love to see this too, while fizilla is showing promise, the UI is my
least favorite part of mozilla. I'd love a nice UI wrapper around gecko,
and there has been some talk about this recently on the macosx-talk
mailing list. Probably not an easy project, but worth doing :)

I believe he is on this list...

I'm not familiar with this either. I know Troll Tech did an initial port
to QT and the source is in the mozilla tree, but I hadn't heard anything
about this involving ObjC. Troll Tech's page on it is at:


This could be an interesting project, perhaps the first attempt at a major
app that is compatible with OSX and GNUstep? I think it might be quite a
pain to get it working with both, but it seems the GNUstep appkit is
complete enough for most of what you would need for a browser UI. I'm more
interested in a good ObjC interface to gecko however, I think this would
offer alot to the GNUstep project and the OSX community.
