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.
