New Java Browsers--do they exist?

Now that the browser wars have cooled off so badly that I have been living with the same IE bugs for over a year, and still nothing supports swing, I'm wondering if anybody has been trying to make a full-featured java browser. Seems like a natural thing to find, somewhere out in the open-source world....

Well, StarOffice is a browser, more or less, and it does contain Java...it's not standalone, though, so that might be a limitation. ;> Does the open-source world at staroffice.com know about your request?
The StarOffice browser is a little slow, has a billion setup features. Not the best feature in the package, not the worst.

I'm not sure about the Mozilla, I think the newest one is based largely on Java. I think netscape is somewhat c=based on Java as well.

And there is the pure-Java ICEbrowser which has been maturing fairly well over the last year or two, although I think they now charge for it.
