You want an internet suite stuffed into one browser?
That's sorta something what Seamonkey and ChromeOS do and dozens of failed projects before them did.
Which is not really good. Having interoperability and data exchange between different gui applications is cool, but having your browser to do all the work is asking for a trouble with too much attack surface. I am also pretty sure, you can have all this shit like accessing zeronet, irc, tor and i2p, download torrents and email with set of web browser addons.
You should also understand that hosting stuff from home computer puts drawbacks on availability compared to a remote VPS in a professional datacenter, or a dedicated server in your basement with nig-rigged car battery UPS which not everyone is eager to invest in.
>the random entropy hash prevents
You just came up with some useless bullshit. Look at how onion, eepsite, gnunet and cjdns domains are resolved and generated. It should not only be a "random hash", but also act as a public encryption key or public key hash without reliability on someone's DNS servers.
The main problem of "le decentralized internet" is how easy it would be for external powerful actor to remove pieces of it, and remove them not only for one group of users, but for everyone. Let's say you live in small corrupt country and post on facebook. Your country's government wants to remove your posts from facebook, but until those break facebook's tos or facebook has big-money business in your country, they don't care. And what would your country do then, ddos facebook or block it? The latter is feasible, but blocks can be avoided, the data still exists on Facebook's servers and is available for those who put much effort in it.
Now say again, you live in Ancapistan Enterprizes Real Estate. A society of decentralized Internetz and such. You host your blog from home, a small single board server and a 1 gbit unlimited connection, pretty nice isn't it? One day you post something bad about McFacebook corporation on your blog. Automated web crawlers of YaCy search engine detect wrongthink and it triggers McFacebook CEO personally. What happens next? They simply DDOS your weak 1gigabit-wide channel to the point when your ISP, or datacenter where your VPS is hosted disconnects your server for consuming too much traffic and blackholes all requests coming for your address, your server is already inaccessible at this moment. It's done, McFacebook corporation completed it's mission and eliminated you quickly. What would you do next? You either go to your ISP or some decentralized CDN provider and ask them to implement a DDOS protection, i.e. you have to find someone who will host your shit for free on pure enthusiasm (ipfs and webtorrent) or for thousands of shekels (Cloudflare) or in exchange for datamining (Facebook). Now you get the same modern Internet and web, where you have to host your important information on a big datacenter with wide bandwidth, distribute content over wide network of CDNs and gateway proxies.
