Hi Richard,

Specifically, I was thinking about building a news aggregator in RR, and a 
true browser control would be very helpful for that.

Generally, I tend to find the "browser as helper app" approach kinda 
jarring.  I either like my apps to reside entirely within the browser or 
entirely within the desktop app.  Kinda like HTML in e-mail (whose merits 
are dubious, I'll admit) - I'd find it very annoying to have my e-mail 
client fire up a separate browser window every time somebody sent me an 
HTML-formatted message.  That's just my personal preference though.
