In following with my desire to learn C# / .NET / Gtk# / etc., I've
started putting together a web browser. The API is great, and very easy
to understand. What I'd like to know, though, is how viable Gecko# is
for developing a real web browser. I'd eventually like to develop
something as complete as Epiphany or Galeon -- again, just as an
educational thing, but the source will be released -- but as I'm fairly
new to all of this I'm not too sure about how realistic the above goal
is. Can anyone with more familiarity with the current state of the APIs
give some advice on what I need to / should do in order to accomplish my
goal of a .NET web browser?
