I actually want to create a web-browser on my own. There are so many changes i would like to see in my browser that i felt that i would be better of creating my own rather than trying to modify the existing ones.As for the size of project, I have been pursuing programming as a hobby for years and really enjoy it.I dont have any specific timeframe or deadline in mind so the size doesnt matter :).

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?
