Re: Is _your_ Netscape under remote control

controlled remotely. This ''feature'' by Netscap seems utterly pointless,

Nope, not pointless, it allows me to click an URL in Emacs and Netscape will
load it for me.  (Much like any half decent windowing system should.)

However, the '-remote' stuff is simply a way around the grossly brain-dead,
monolithic, resource sucking piece of shit we call X.  If X could have
different apps communicate properly, netscape wouldn't have to do the
'-remote' stuff.

I'll be first in line to bitch at/about Netscape, but this really isn't
their fault.
