Full WPF based Web browser control makes me want to write a Microsoft Surface browser.

Chris Cavanagh has published a fully WPF based web browser including source code. Quoting Chris:

While WPF already includes a WebBrowser, it’s just a wrapper around IE’s ActiveX control.  Unfortunately this prevents it playing nicely with WPF’s layout system. Mixing Google’s Chromium project, a great wrapper called Awesomium and a little WPF pixie dust, we finally have one.

This makes me want to create a Microsoft Surface based web browser that uses a ScatterView control to show different, freely movable and zoomable browser windows.
