This is purely a hobby task, and I maybe use it in my own projects. What
do you mean with
plain cairo API? I meant that I make this port so, that it includes these
normal link-
clicking, clipboard etc. actions implemented, but API user have to make
scrollbars, context
menus and that kind of things itself.
