I cannot think what would stop you from running a browser without any DE or WM. Just edit your ~/.xinitrc.

Just add firefox to it.



It will run fullscreen with no title bar and the usual window frame.

man xinit

if you want to know a little bit the role of .xinitrc file in relation with the X server execution scope.
