A complete TeX distribution should be well within the reach of NeXT (and
there are no real obstacles to a port). I ran it on much smaller
hardware even before NEXTSTEP 3.3 was current.

Gmail is a bit optimistic, or are you only aiming at "basic HTML"?
Many sites no longer support browsers that are only a few years old
(e.g. GitHub, which says it only supports "current versions" of even
very modern browsers).
I expect you'll have a lot of problems with public SSL, as ciphers, key
sizes, trust chain are all rapidly moving targets.
 "In general, Gmail supports the current and prior major release of
Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari."
