And to do so does not necessarily require building an entire browser. 
Since the input "widget" is just one part of a page, you only need to 
prototype that one widget. You can do it in any RAD environment. Make 
a background image that looks like part of a web page if you like, 
and put your widget onto it. Build in your behaviors, then upload it 
to the 'Net for people to try out. Bonus points if you can deploy to 
multiple platforms (REALbasic is good;).
