Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.

> we can't take some well-tested, used-by-millions library
Here is an example of Sciter application that uses RemarkableJS library (https://github.com/jonschlinkert/remarkable) as it is:

Simultaneously the #1 trending developer on GitHub across all languages (out of ~17 million developers at the time) with multiple #1 trending projects: Remarkable (https://github.com/jonschlinkert/remarkable), a markdown parser and compiler (also across all languages, out of ~7 million projects), Enquirer (https://github.com/enquirer/enquirer), a stylish, user-friendly prompt system.32 projects | reddit.com/r/programming | 22 Oct 2021
Since then they've made things that are IMO quite useful, like enquirer, micromatch, and remarkable.

will give you split-view out-of-the-box. But web dev's will start looking for frameworks in order to achieve this simple task that browser have internally already.
TL;DR: Web and desktop UIs use inherently different models. You can share parts between these two different platforms but only parts, really.

100%. To add a little more detail, the scope is both broad and deep.
Broad - You have many, many new features like WebAssembly or WebXR Device API. All of these are bets and it is hard to know which will gain adoption, so you build things like WebSQL, only to have them abandon for a new winner (IndexedDB).
Deep - Rendering HTML5 content with CSS3 styles is such a massive effort. Check out the Servo project, Mozilla's attempt to rewrite the rendering engine in Rust. You have world experts that have already written a rendering engine and after years of progress (2012 - 2018) there was still more to do. TODOs include implement Flexbox, which is core primitive in today's web design toolkit. I'm not sure how feature complete Servo is today, but it is shocking how much effort is required to build a production rendering engine.

suggestions for non-chromium based browsers that aren't firefox?

There is one other web engine called Servo, for other people interested in new web rendering projects, but it's far from complete (maybe development even stalled, I'm not sure). An interesting project, but definitely shouldn't be used as a main web browser just yet. I've yet to check it out fully though.
