Satellite images of Earth at night — often referred to as "night lights" — have been a gee-whiz curiosity for the public and a tool for fundamental research for nearly 25 years. They have provided a broad, beautiful picture, showing how humans have shaped the planet and lit up the darkness. Produced every decade or so, such maps have spawned hundreds of pop-culture uses and dozens of economic, social science and environmental research projects.
Did you ever even hear of Buran, the Russion version of the Space Shuttle? Even if it resembled the Space shuttle very much, there were also some significant differences. It could, at least in theory, take off and fly like an airplane to another location. It then would not have required to be carried on top of a large cargo plane.

"I controlled my laughter and simple said "No,I am very busy,so I can't write any code for you". The moment they heard this all the smiling face turned into a sad looking face and one of them farted. So I had to leave the place as soon as possible." - Mr.Prakash One Fine Saturday. 24/04/2004
I hate to disagree, but a browser is something that is designed to render web content.
Connecting to the Internet is the responsibility of the owner of the machine and the network card/driver/software. If I thought that a browser had taken control of that, or even tried to, I would uninstall and blacklist it immediately.
I feed a browser HTML files, of whatever origin, and it displays me nicely rendered pages. That's its only job.
Half the help files in the world are now delivered and installed as locally-stored web content, which are accessed through a browser which renders web content -- much like word-processed documents are rendered through a word processor.
I'm not bothered about that, though, because any browser will happily display help files on air-gapped machines.
However, the cheery chaps at cisco decided to make a plug-in that only works correctly with chrome, and my customers want to use this plug-in.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
