Even if you don’t, hey, we’re getting a nice kickback from a third party for including it, so WE’LL love it.”

seems you could like the old FireFox interface, thus what ArcticFox is 
trying to support and achieve - pre-Aurora, where a search bar and URL 
bar are separate, where the preferences are a Panel and not a WebPage. 
Almost nostalgic.

One catch: lots of work to do to update the underpinnings.. and the 
future is dim too, if FF goes more and more rust.

But if you like it, you might want to join and help? Maybe it gets 
momentum and other people could be interested in a usable, portable 
browser which Firefox was for a long time, but stopped to be, sadly.
