Yeah, I was sad to see it was dropped. The problem is that being the
web, if it doesn't stay supported and updated, it'll no longer be
compatible with lots of the new horrors our web overlords have
planned. And not many people seem to jump at the task of web
renderer development.

Probably. There isn't javascript support yet, either (though they're
working on it). I don't really care; I'd rather have a renderer that
displays most webpages fine, and doesn't make me go "aaaaghh" ;)
