#3212 closed defect (invalid)

Consider unifying Read and Web

It may be confusing that, to access
OLPC Library, one must use Web
rather than Read (if one opens the
Read activity and tries to go into
the Library directory, one sees a
lot of apparently-empty directories
because they don't contain files in
formats supported by the Read

Can't the reader be moved into the
web browser as a plug-in and the
two activities combined? or
perhaps Read launches the web
browser pointing to the library
whereas Web points to some outside
home page, thus clearly exposing
the difference between reading ON
the laptop and reading OFF the
laptop, rather than introducing a
confusing difference in supported
formats (why should the child have to care that
PDF books will be in Read and HTML books will be in Web)

This suggestion has been made before, and rejected. I forget which trac number it's filed as.
