Oh, right. I'm thinking Glimpse.

That's the point I'm making - right now if you use KDE libs, help will
come up in the KDE browser, and if you use GNOME libs it will come up
in the GNOME browser. Instead the browser should be selected by the
user and all apps should use the same browser. One sane user selection
would be "match my current desktop." But users don't care what toolkit
the app was written with and don't want to hear that explanation for
why they have two different help browsers on their screen.
