Hi,

I'm just wanting to let you know that we have done this already. You may
have a look at the Live CD that we just released last week:

  http://genode.org/download/live-cds

The browser is based on Arora, which uses WebKit. For the Live CD, we
decided for using the OKL4 kernel but the browser runs also on L4/Fiasco
(albeit no Fiasco.OC yet), L4ka::Pistachio, and Linux (running directly
on top of the kernel - w/o GNU userland or glibc).

Cheers
Norman
