[webkit-dev] WebKit rendering engine for CD autorun program

    I was thinking of creating demos along the same lines.  Not for
webkit, but for firefox not that it matters.  What I was thinking of
doing was making a bootable USB key with Ubuntu on it, my demo and all
the required support on the 'live' USB key.  16gig USB keys are not
expensive, 8gigs would probably be more than enough unless you have a
LOT of data.

   I have found that even using the same browser, support libraries
across OS's, and even distros, can have a huge impact on performance,
which makes a big difference on my SVG demos.

   This would require powering up the computer to boot from the USB
drive, but, total control as long as the hardware is ok.
