Sure it's possible. Someone just needs to do it, who is not me.

NetSurf WOS and SheepShaver would be two best apps for classic PPC amigas :-)

Anything that can run WarpOS can run OS4 so why would anyone spend limited resources to add PPC support to a WOS only version?

Not true for MOS hardware (can run WarpOS under emulation) and not true for certain pci cards with PowerPC CPUs on them (only run WarpOS)

You are right about the part about the limited resources and I would too choose on that basis the platform with the biggest userbase but the rest is ignorant.

At one point I was playing around with building a WarpOS version of Netsurf, a large portion of it seemed to build alright, maybe with the SDL driver it could be done without too much hassle. That might be easier than OWB.

It would be nice! In theory all of my hardware is supported under OS4, But likes to freeze on me at random times. Was hoping update 2 would help, but I had to pause my experimentation as I ran into an issue when I rebooted after the update...
But in some cases, I actually like running 3.9 with WarpOS more.
