Currently WEB browsers work by launching external apps to take care of
functions that the browser can't/doesn't handle, right?

Maybe the VR component of VRML would be handled by such an external app. Then
when you wanted to link back to the WEB you would walk up to a terminal or
white board click on it and this would get you back to the WEB browser that
might have a standard computer monitor frame or whiteboard frame. There could
be a button to return you back to the VR app.
