I did work on that; you can certainly make a firefox extension that
supports collaboration, journal access, etc. My firefox activity did
some of what's necessary. Firefox can speak dbus, etc.
That said, I had first-hand experience w/ a project which switched
from embedded mozilla to webkit, and I can testify that the
performance improvement was indeed significant.
