    Perhaps that's where the main focus is now...? Instead of a faster and lighter next generation browser for the desktop.

    Oh I must of totally mis-read that entire web page. Lol my bad I skim read. Second read finally got what your post was about

    I say all too Mozilla if they can manage to make a net based os. Just as long as they don't take google's path, and keep privacy with the users at control not Mozilla.

    Although I have one query how does this pass over to other web browsers? Like opera, safari, chrome. There not all planning net based os's? so one could presume resources could be reduced to a similar level as IE

    I didn't mean functionality wise lol... i meant in terms of RAM. IE uses so little.

    Maybe the low RAM usage is because of the low functionality :P

    That's just great.

    And Capitalism. America is one of the biggest economies world-wide. It DEPENDS on complete consumer turnaround every 3-7 years (turnaround= consumers buying new (almost) everything every 3-7 years). So, along with bells and whistles and user requests, web browsers do what they have to in order to stay competitive in the market.

    They want you to throw them away and buy new stuff to keep the ecnomoy high. But, I don't agree with that. I mean, I do to an extent, but mostly don't. This just doesn't seem like the place to get into an economic/political/cultural debate regarding respective philosophies. Suffice it to say, I mostly agree with you. Like 98.938431%.

    Bingo! Not that no one else on here wasn't smart enough to figure it out. Welcome to the forums, by the way.

    I'm willing to tolerate it for now. Especially since I have educational videos posted on there.
