GtkMozEmbed is an easy-to-use widget that will allow you to embed a Mozilla browser window into your Gtk application.

It's designed to be easy to use and uncomplicated to make the barrier for use as low as possible. This means that the functionality exposed should cover about 80% of uses. If you want to get at some of Mozilla's higher brain functions it means that you will have to write your own embedding widget.

A sweet example of a GtkMozEmbed application: Newton is a (serverless) desktop wiki applet for GNOME.
