bucksboy: We've said time and again that, if NetSurf is to support JavaScript, then a lot of groundwork will need to be done first. There's utterly no point in just hacking JS support in -- then you'll end up with a WXL-style mess. As it happens, one of the projects being undertaken this summer forms part of that groundwork.

In fact, since NetSurf 1.0 was released, approximately 20,000 lines of code have been written with the specific goal of putting NetSurf in a position of being able to support JavaScript. For comparison, the entire NetSurf 1.0 codebase totals about 70,000 lines of code.
