It can be done, I wrote a simple one while at university some years ago, it's all about socket programming. If you don't know what that is, better start there. Then there are lots of other bits also, so you'll need to be a wiz programmer.

By way of example the Chrome browser contains 6.7 million lines of code.

But depending on what you want your browser to do, you may be able to get away with a lot less, but then it probably will not be as flexible or as secure.
