Didnt knew netsurf. it looks fast. but...

1) keyboard support sucks (no way to change between tabs, and no way to
switch between text fields, links, ... with tab)

2) dependencies:
Depends On : libmng librsvg curl libglade lcms libjpeg>=7
libwapcaplet libcss

I don't get the point of not distributing netsurf as a library... it
would be great if this project was just producing a standalone library
and a simple client implementation.

3) where's the javascript? most modern websites works only with
javascript. there'r tons of libraries to run it.. maybe you will say:
"js sucks".. but the web is made of it, and you can't ignore it.

4) possibility to filter or ban ads? (custom js fun? custom css stuff?)
