It'd be nice,  but do have any idea of how compute intensive 
it would be?  To do a credible job,  the browser would have to
render to an off-screen area,  and it would then need to overlay
all the other graphics.  So it would need to redraw the entire page
and then blit it onscreen about 30 times a second.  Am I the only one
who sees a problem with this?
