Gabriel,

Thanks for your message:

> I'd like to try any browser besides MSIE, NS and Opera with its own engine.

The W3C has an open-source browser called Amaya:
  http://www.w3.org/Amaya
  http://www.w3.org/Amaya/Activity.html

Amaya hasn't kept up with the W3C Recommendations much better 
than the commercial browsers.  In fact Amaya can not yet even 
upload files from the filesystem, let alone devices.

I hope that the Amaya team isn't waiting for the XForms forms 
overhaul.  "Don't fix things that aren't broken" should go at 
least doubly for things that have become foundations of the 
economies of most industrialized nations!

Cheers,
James
