It would be great of he was of those people who completely changed our
thinking. A visionary. But he is refusing to engage. That annoys people who
like to think.
IMHO, to a develop a browser, you have to engage. The web depends on
co-operation (protocol etc). Maybe he has developed some super method of
parsing mark-up, or some algorithm that does something client side, but it
seems unlikely. If on the other hand, he has developed a new protocol, well
that's great but if you patent its unlikely to replace HTTP/TCP/IP.
Have to wait and see.

Not true. Think about it. All he is doing is writing a window manager,
really. Someone should show him Enlightenment.
