Grail is pretty much dead, I think. If you look at the checkin mailing list the last activity was in 2001. If you really want to write a web browser it might be a good starting point though.

wxPython has an HTML widget that could also be a starting point.

I hope you realize that creating a browser on the scale of Firefox or IE is a massive and difficult project. Is that your goal or did you have something more modest in mind?
