I don't know if you ever found a solution to this, but one suggestion I was
thinking of was to have a black card with the browser scaled to 1x1 pixel,
like the black screen that will sometimes precede a video (or even white, if
that makes more sense).  Then you could scale the browser to card size and
be off.  Just a "smoke and mirrors" thought.
