The emulator includes the same Webkit-based browser that ships with Android. Other browsers are available (like Dolphin and Opera).

I have found the webkit browser in the emulator to be a great development tool. I would also suggest downloading the browser from webkit.org as it contains a number of useful tools to test your "android" browser sites against. The web development chapter in Android in Action will be of interest to you.

Also, here are a couple of tutorials I wrote a while back on the topic of Android (and iPhone) browser app development:

web dev means apps for webkit-browser, actually non-web-apps?

apps for running in the browser. Could be

straight up from the browser app
in an webview within your app
in a natively compiled app ala a framework such as phonegap

all webkit/html/css/javascript

JQuery Mobile is also on the horizon. You can learn more about that project:
