GoldOS: reinventing browsing

Registered 2008-12-30 by jhuni

This is a project to vastly improve web browsers so that they are all that is necessary.

In my opinion the greatest insanity in modern computing systems is manual installation. The main way to avoid installation is to use a web browser, so this project is mainly focused upon vastly improving web browsers so that they are sufficient.

Since pop-up blockers are ubiquitous today, the first development would be to eliminate the need for them by placing content in place and utilising zooming. The next thing is to create a standard versioning and undo system to allow services to create revise data segments. Ultimately, we should end up having a user interface similar to Jef Raskin's Archy.
