[tdf-discuss] Adding the browser to Libreoffice

I can see the point behind working with one or more of the open source
browsers to better integrate libreoffice with the browser. I can even see
the point of offering that browser as part of the download, but I am not
convinced that writing yet another open source browser is a good idea. It
seems a waste of developer resources and it would be unlikely that enough
good developers could be attracted to do the work in order to compete with
the established projects.

I use coffee every day in the office but I don't expect libreoffice to
supply me with it :-)

Just my 2p for what its worth I am not a libreoffice developer.
