Modern web browsers seem like they were designed by someone who saw a document retrieval system and said, “How can I make this more like TV?”
@djmoch also, big eyeball ISPs be like
"I know how to sell TV. How can I make Internet more like TV? With different price plans for different types of content, and such..."
@djmoch more like "How can we puts ads everywhere and grab people's attention?". Almost as if browsers and web stuff where developed by companies paid by advertisers.
