In response to a post made to the Tcler's wiki earlier this week, todays TLC was given to the gnocl::webKit package. Ok, its all still pretty well early stuff but the core navigation controls are there. Looking at things, perhaps the name of the core command should be changed to gnocl::webView. There are no docs yet, but all the key implemented options  and commands are used in the following test script.
