  If you're not going to include (say) several Web browsers in the menu,
perhaps you should not install the extras by default?

  This would not only save space, it would keep the menu program from
having to do lots of work to figure out what stuff to show the user and
what stuff to hide.

  The only serious problem I see with this is the silly [0] dependency of
every Mozilla-based program on the browser itself...


  [0] ok, annoying..
