A text browser would be a good idea and easy to implement but requires a full terminal emulator (with ANSI escape sequences, terminfo goodies, etc). Try to run top on KOReader terminal and you'll find we're not close to that. The terminal in KOReader is just to type commands and get an output, and works well for that purpose.

About the text editor, it is a great tool and supports lua syntax checking, which is nice because we can edit some KOReader files with the program running. But it isn't designed to be a general purpose tool. You could argue that adding hunspell to check grammar it would be a great idea, but IMO it doesn't worth the hussle.
