If you're familiar with C in a UNIX context, there's bags of NetSurf you
can get your teeth in to without ever touching anything RISC OS or ARM
specific - NetSurf is essentially a UNIX application written in C.  The
RISC OS front end is neatly separated from everything else.

Have a dig around and see what you can fiddle with, by all means.
Contributions of any kind are always welcome.
