Create a browsing platform along with a set of integrated applications using Adobe Integrated Runtime (AIR) cross-operating system

I have received the following mail this weekend. I’m posting here so that anyone in this community can contact this reader and give him a little help.

“What I want to do is create a next-generation browser that is free of the design constraints of the typical browser. I want to create the browsing platform along with a set of integrated applications using Adobe Integrated Runtime (AIR) cross-operating system. The apps will be built on Flash, AJAX and PHP. What I am having trouble understanding is whether the web browser would be compatible with AIR if the Gecko layout engine (C++) was used.

I’m sure there are many ways to go about creating a web browser without using C++ (maybe?). I bet it can even be done with AIR. I guess I am mostly thinking about supporting open internet standards.

Please excuse me for my ignorance…like I said before, I am not a developer! Any opinions on this matter will be accepted with open arms. If you have any questions for me, please let me know. If you think I am crazy for sending you an unsolicited email, then please ignore me! I’ll understand, I promise! But if you wouldn’t mind opening up a discussion on this, I would be grateful.

Also, we could talk about a paid relationship if your interested. I am open to two scenarios: (1.) paying a fee for the development of the prototype, and; (2.) a full time equity position to build the prototype and to lead the development of the entire website.
