As of July 2009 the lightweight web browser abaco is now distributed as part of the stock Plan 9 distribution. It is a web browser that started as a rewrite of webpage, with many new improvements including tables support. A testing snapshot can be found at: /n/sources/contrib/fgb
webfs(4) and html(2) were written at Bell labs as the backend for a new web browser; unfortunately the project stalled. Aki Nyrhinen has since written a simple frontend called webpage for these which does an amazingly good job of rendering basic web pages; it also makes interesting use of the plumber to support hyperlinks. This work also stalled and has been superseded by abaco.

VNC TO WINDOWS OR *NIX
The best way to get a fully supported web browser under plan9 is to use the vnc client to connect to a linux or Windows box. This performs very well if used over a fast network connection.
