Forgot about Dillo! Good stuff:

- 53k sloc; beats w3m & lynx feature-wise
- It's here today and works reasonably well

Bad stuff:

- UI is horribly inconvenient; spartan doesn't mean it should suck
- C++, autohell, pthreads
- FLTK is 100k sloc C++; includes support for Cairo, GL, kitchen sinks
- Focus on security - status unknown?
