It's not really about the webbrowser. It's more a
question of examples of how one could program with
self. I've read somewhere that the browser used a very
object-oriented instead of class-oriented way. Morphic
on the other hands looks to be much more

Also, OSX is just bsd unix with a different UI so
maybe the webbrowser works again?
