Hello XDA!

I've modified the Note II's PopupBrowser.apk to match our screen, and made a small app, that throws and intent to start Popup Browser from the launcher.
Note: The activity which calls the Popup Browser is now merged in the main apk. Therefore you only need to install the latest PopupBrowser.apk (see downloads)
Hope you like it!

Installation
This thing is touchwiz dependant, so only works on stock JB based roms, (for example XXLSJ).
Install as normal apk. No root needed.
Note: Please uninstall the PopupBrowser_Launcher.apk since it is not needed from v1.3
Note: You may need to restart your device (or start the popupbrowser from launcher) to make your system register it for the web view intents.

Changelog
2012.12.03: Starting with today, a version for Note II is also available (with original dimensions taken from the Note II apk).
PopupBrowser.apk v1.3: Added resize functionality (toggle between: normal / large / header form)
fixed landscape layout,
merged with PopupBrowser_Launcher.apk.
PopupBrowser.apk v1.2: disabled excludeFromRecents
PopupBrowser_Launcher v1.1: disabled excludeFromRecents
PopupBrowser.apk v1.1: fixed webview width.

Good job!!! how to resize the browser once it is set to fullscreen?

That's impossible (at least now). The popup browser closes itself, after opening the normal fullscreen browser. The fullscreen browser should be modded to have an option to pop out the current page. (Which could be easily done) Another thing is to mod the popup browser to stay in the recent apps, then maybe after launching the normal browser, the back button should bring it back.

I've disabled the excludeFromRecents option -> Now you can go back to the mini browser in the recent apps menu, but the progress will be lost. Please update both the Launcher and Browser apk-s! See first post!

Thanks for the votes!
The PopupBrowser has been updated, now it features 2 other display modes:

Large mode and Header mode

The resize button toggles between the 3 states in order: Normal > Large > Header
