kernel + webkit + webgl
« on: March 08, 2013, 08:48:30 AM »
Hello forum.

I have and idea that eats my mind for a while.
I`m thinking to make a combination of kernel + webkit + webgl
and make a unix based os that runs a single application.
this sound more like chorme os somehow only that it isn`t.
I want a linux that boots and displays as user interface html document
with no window manager or file editor.

Watch this video till it ends with the max resolution you could find:

The idea is possible, but the problem at that time was that some pages request the main window, so, if try to load Gmal in a iframe, it crashes all the interface.

Still looking a way to rebuild the project.

Perhaps

could provide some inspiration.

What about using an MDI browser?
