EWW (Emacs Web Wowser) – a web browser for GNU Emacs. It allows browsing URLs within an Emacs buffer, and can load, parse, and display various web pages using shr.el. It became part of GNU Emacs starting with version 24.4.

EWW was originally written by Lars Ingebrigtsen, known for his work on Gnus. He started writing an Emacs HTML rendering library, shr.el, to read blogs in Gnus. He eventually added a web browser front end and HTML form support. Which resulted in EWW, the Emacs Web Wowser. EWW was announced on 16 June 2013.
