Two solutions I use

w3m-el, an emacs mode that uses w3m and displays pages in emacs. Works
really well for text stuff, but lacks javascript support.

The second alternative is w3.el - a web browser written in elisp. Has
some real potential IMO, but is lacking people to help develop it. 

Both solutions work nicely if you just want to view text based pages
that don't rely on javascript etc.
