No, that was not what I was talking about. In this browser discussion,
I am not interested in ways to understand complexity as your proposed
solution. I think the fact that the browser needs to be this huge is a
signal that things are very, very wrong, and a new solution for
application distribution needs to come. I am not trying to understand
the current browser's code nor looking for ways to deal with huge
messes. I can't believe the the web and the browser are the better
solution for this problem.
