I have been pondering how to do something like this, and will be deploying my web sites under it when it happens: BitTorrent Sync Used to Create Decentralized Web Browser:

Called SyncNet, Minardi’s tool is built on BitTorrent Sync, the powerful Dropbox-like software launched last year by BitTorrent Inc. While in its basic form Sync is generally used for syncing files and folders between machines, friends and co-workers, in its SyncNet application it is used to store and distribute HTML, images and other web content.

Thing is, BTsync wasn't designed to separate write vs read functions; AFAIK if you have the key to retrieve and read the data, you can also write into that space. This may lead to security issues with this web browser. IMO it'd be better to write a different back-end for this.
