> I agree with Thiago that this also requires WebKit to be updated with security fixes. It will potentially show downloaded content from anywhere, and it’s not nice if someone can offer a malicious qch, using known security issues in WebKit. And with JavaScript etcetera the “attack area” is much larger than actually necessary for browsing documentation.

Note that it's possible to disable JavaScript completely at run time, reducing attack surface.

As well as implementation for Windows.
