Uh, no. Just to name one example: tell me, are you absolutely and 100%
sure no user will ever try to use a gecko-based browser on an older
architecture? And yes, if you want to support that, that means you have
to build mozilla

There _are_ lightweight gecko-based browsers, you know.

Claiming "nobody sane will ever use that" means someone who's actually
interested in using said software, even if it's slow is left out in the
cold. That's silly.

The amount of time between slipping on the peel and landing on the
pavement is precisely one bananosecond
