How to create our own browser?

I wonder, how we can create our own browser, like Chrome? What programming language that we use to create one to be compatible for all OS?
Is it profitable to create new browser branding?

Chromium is a free and open-source software project from Google. The source code can be compiled into a web browser and browsers like Chrome, Opera, Microsoft Edge browsers, and Brave are built on top of Chromium.

With interface difference for each browser, they still run by same codebase "Chromium".

Is it profitable to create new browser branding?

That depends upon your use-case on how you plan to make a browser into a profitable business.

You can take an example from Brave browser, as they strips out ads from websites, replaces them with its own ads, then allows users to send money to sites they like.

I used to create my own web browser but piggyback Chromium, it's called Project Echoes. Just for fun, practicing, and understand it.
