I need a cross-platform command line tool that can open a website (http://127.0.0.1:8000/) in a window.
Obviously Chrome and other browsers can do this. However, I need the window to be only the content of the website. In other words, there is no such thing as an address bar, or a back/forward button, or a bookmarks feature, etc. It's just a window showing the contents of http://127.0.0.1:8000/.
As a Java programmer, I can achieve this using JavaFX. I can make a window and put a WebView in it and done. The problem with this approach is that JavaFX' WebView has bad performance in regards to intensive use of the HTML5 canvas (which I need).
In an ideal world, I would like to use Chrome without any of its interface. So the command line call would be like
