I suppose you are correct.  But since so much is now done by a user
interfacing with the Web, anything that aids that interface, by the main
tool for that interface, seems to me within the scope of that tool (i.e.
the browser).  Whether you ( I am not being personal here ) would use it
or not, I would.  Everybody works differently.  If it is best as a
plugin, that's fine.

It is programs I only launch when I need them.
