I let you in on a little screct: Sun hates HTML because it competes with Java on the desktop. If HTML/CSS/Javascript could do it all who needs Swing? Think about it.

Here at Microsoft we have silently frozen Internet Exploder for years and gently push our beloved customers to use our newest Windows Forms .Net milk machine.

No - and as a Microsoft employee I'm not sure why anyone would believe you could speak for Sun.

IMHO Sun has done a worthy job of integrating HTML into Swing; you can even have a JButton rendered using HTML. For wizards, information panels, help, etc. Java's HTML support works great and provides a lot of flexibility.

I believe Sun would prefer Swing clients, and anyone would given the choice. That doesn't mean Sun hates anything HTML.

Frig, this was an obvious troll and I shouldn't have wasted my time responding.
Musn't... get... fished... in... :-)

Cheers.

June 22nd? Sorry for the late posting; options are very limited on the open source front, Jazilla (http://sourceforge.net/projects/jazilla) has recently started up again and I did have high hopes for the NetBeans browser (http://netbrowser.netbeans.org/) but it seems dead-in-the-water.

WebWindow isn't open source, it's shareware so not too expensive(http://www.javio.com/)

otherwise try;

ICEBrowser - Web Browser HTML Java Component:
http://www.icesoft.no/

XBrowser:
http://xbrowser.sourceforge.net/

Grand-Rapid SWT HTML Browser:

Webclient:

(scrapes bottom of the barrel) HotJava:

..anyone know if an improved HTML browser has been mooted for a future release (1.5?)

I was kinda hoping that you could specify a native one. So I could have khtml and a Windows user could get all the bugs from IE :)
