I find browsers to be totally on-topic actually. :-) More so than other
things that are typically discussed. One of the issues in browsing the
web is that I hit this upper limit of about 400 tabs at once in Opera.
In Firefox I hit an upper limit of maybe 50 before things start to go
up in flames. Google Chrome might be smart enough to make the cut with
multithreaded tabs, but we'll see. I have to go scrunge up a Windows
box or something.
Here are some of my thoughts on doing some intense extropic browsing:

also my "on hold" (but not?) implementation of 'search facilitator'.
