Thread: Looking for web browser implemented in Java

  1. #1

    Default Looking for web browser implemented in Java

    Hi everyone,

    Has anyone built/implemented a web browser purely in Java?
    I have been searching for some open source projects, but not satisfy with the result, so I ask my question here, hopefully some guys will help me on the way.

    Thanks in advance.

    I doubt you'll find anything better than Lobo and that's not great.

    There may be others that are wrappers on a proper web rendering engine - I suspect mozswing might fall into that category.

    What do you want it for?

    Check out the Browser class in SWT. It is not Swing and requires platform dependent libraries, but blows Lobo out of the water.

    I have tried Lobo but it didn't work right with the first try.
    Using platform dependent libraries is not bad, as long as it provides libraries for all the popular platforms (win, mac, linux).
    Still looking...
