If you are happy with a Microsoft-only solution, you could use
asynchronous pluggable protocols
as an alternative to moving to Redmond. (I assuming that you have some
code for resolving the URNs and are just looking for a way to integrate
this into the browser.) For Netscape, of course, you just need to
download, modify and build the Mozilla sources. ;-) Ease of
extensibility is one of the reasons that Microsoft won the browser wars.
