That looks interesting.

But then it would also compromise the openness and "hackability" of the web.
I like that I can easily inject my own javascript or css on any
website to make it do what I want, remove whatever advertising or any
sections I don't want. To make it readable and adaptable to my
environment. Or parse them myself and extract some data from it,
include them in a script and process the text with UNIX tools.

If a new stack were to replace web browsers, I wouldn't want it to be
designed to send me a closed mess of binary bloat from some company
that might not care to consume all my computer resources to show some
flashy shit.
