Did you know that you can embed the WebKit browser if you use Java SWT? or
you can use Safari or Mozilla as well.  WebKit comes as a component that you
can load and add as a child window so that it's basically embedded in your
app.  If you want to know more about this then let me know and i'll point
you in the right direction.  If you just want a browser which isn't so
integrated into your app. you can just invoke it via the JVM as a separate
process and even communicate with it via XML or XMLRPC or whatever method
you prefer.

Note that Eclipse SWT already support Window/Mac/Linux with full browser
support for all three. See http://www.eclipse.org/swt/faq.php#whatisbrowser
