Work in progress. Be patient. All comments are welcomed. I'm not a native english writer, so I surely do mistakes.
For the moment, I try to get all we need to understand and test GeoView.
Why GeoView ?

The html kits
We can use webkit or gtkmozembed to view html pages. If no one is installed, you'll never see GeoView. If the two kits are installed, webkit will be used.

Gecko ( GtkMozEmbed )
There will be no more development for html 5 with gtkmozembed. So gtkmozembed will be abandonned in the future.
