I played with Dillo before Dillo2 and unfortunately I needed something that had CSS support and JavaScript support. I remember that port was well maintained. Unfortunately I also remember that upstream was a one man who could not add features fast enough even if he worked full time on Dillo.

It's also a really great project for someone looking to do some dev work. All you need is some C knowledge.

(This post made from an OpenBSD/loongson machine running NetSurf. The forums look great.)

Unfortunately IIRC JavaScript support was hit and miss if available at all so I have given up and went back to Opera at that time.
