Emacs Web Wowser (EWW [the page EWW also exists]) is a Web browser written in elisp and based on shr.el. It is included in Emacs 24.4 and later. It supports some basic CSS and HTML5.


Make sure that libxml2 and GnuTLS are installed and that the executables and DLLs can be found by EMACS. You may add their location to %PATH%. The aforementioned packages are provided by ezwinports or Emacs (25, 32-bit) (same for 64 bit).

You may also need to install TLS certificates, as explained in Magnus’ article “how to enable GnuTLS for Emacs 24 on Windows”.
