There was a project called Skipstone that was building a Gecko-based
browser with a GTK+ interface in C.  It seems to have been abandoned
about two years ago.

Galeon started out as a fast, lightweight Gecko-based browser.  Now it's
a Gecko-based browser that's whoring itself to every new "feature"
Gnome2 comes out with, that requires specific Mozilla versions installed
in order to run, is a royal BASTARD to compile, and has traded away all
its best features in a quest to become the official Gnome browser after
that place has already been taken by Epiphany.
