There is fairly complete, but somewhat abandoned, browser called Plume. I
might try fitting it in in place of one of the other apps. The small problem
is that Tcl/Tk has native support for GIF, but not JPG graphics. Instead,
JPG are supported by an add-on Tk extensions, which eats a lot
of space. If you can live without JPG graphics, it's a cool script.
