"Helper Application"?

The RevTalk Dictionary entry for the "environment" function lists 
"helper application" as one of the possible values the function can return:

    If the environment function returns "helper application",
    Revolution is running as a helper application, configured
    by a web browser to display web-based content.

That's not the same as the plugin, is it?  That entry is from the v3.0 
dictionary, long before the plugin was even in development.

What does it mean for a Rev standalone to be "configured by a web 
browser to display web-based content"?
