By 'characteristics' I guess you mean 'quirks/features'. Agreed,
in a world of plenty, close replication of behaviour is a greater 
virtue than browser independence. And along that line,

I wasn't able to get Mimic to display emoji. A couple of weeks back
I took the DoCoMo emoji page and de-scaled the images back to
(nearly) pixel-perfect 1-bit-transparent 1:1. They were all scaled
at different *ratios* and it was no picnic, more of a banquet, the
'cleaning-up-after" part.

I was going to write a substitution script for PHP to view them properly
(enough), but Mimic is a much better vehicle. Or,
if someone can show me how to merge them into a Shift-JIS font,
the world would be a better place for allus gaijin developers.

Any interest?
