Ticket #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 activity).
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)
