From the point of the browser developers, their browsers got burdened with all kind of tasks that were desktop applications in the past: Multimedia, dynamic content from multiple sources, all kind of interactivities, independent processes, and countless plugins and snapp-in apps with nearly inpredictable interactions. And before all, the desktop simply becomes the internet. In fact, i know young people who already do not know what concepts like desktop or browser mean or what it's good for. Before talking about 'bloating browsers' one should consider this a paradigma change, and a future where the word 'browser' becomes meaningless.
