http://hacks.mozilla.org

Web developers already have localStorage, which is used for client side storage of simple key-value pairs.

Interview: Eben Moglen - Freedom vs. The Cloud Log

http://www.h-online.com

Free software has won: practically all of the biggest and most exciting Web companies like Google, Facebook and Twitter run on it.

Microsoft confessed blaming a vendor they had worked with.

* Very minimal graphical interface. You only see what you need
* what is not browsing, is not in uzbl. Things like url changing, loading/saving of bookmarks, saving history, downloads... are handled through external scripts that you write
