Web Browsers OpenFAQ

Emacs has everything! Does it have a web browser?


Yes. (Emacs is covered separately here because it is really a platform in its own right, much like java.)


A WWW browser for the Emacs environment, one of the most widely ported pieces of software in existence. Emacs can be obtained from any of the GNU ftp sites.

Two variants that may be of interest are NTEmacs, a nice native port to Windows 95/NT, and XEmacs, which is a separate branch of Emacs with what some feel to be superior internals, plus support for variable height and width fonts, inline images, etc. A native port of XEmacs to Windows 95/NT is currently underway.
