And here I though a web browser is ... for BROWSING the web ie the internet, as good as Firefox is (along with the other bloatware that is chromium and opera ) it is not a web browser - not by the classical definition anyhoo.
These are more akin to WEB or Internet user ENVIRONMENTS - almost capable of supplanting the need for an actual Desktop Environment. the average size and requirements of these applications are similar to that required to run a OS of about 10-12 years ago
I love firefox but like an application to do one thing, and do it well.
Oh, did someone mention a flame war.... LOL
