jrick, I tried the w3m FreeBSD port but it doesn't compile.
nslay, I agree, I don't see ChromeOS going anywhere because the web stack is fundamentally flawed. You may be interested in the ideas here.

There's also security benefits of a microkernel design! But most of all, in an open source community where cutting-edge drivers are often unstable, it sure would be nice if misbehaving drivers didn't crash the system; another hypothetical benefit of a microkernel!

However, it would also be nice to move away from a Unix-like system. Unix is cool, but its been 40 years and Google has proved to be innovative. I suppose they could use Minix's kernel since thats under the BSDL.
