Firefox really needs AI, but can't afford it..? Or are you not intending to
pick on Firefox?
I'm sure there are a million creative ways the new storage API can be used,
and I for one hope the folks that write chrome extensions (*HINT-HINT:Sage*)
see the possibilities*.
When I read your database diss, I immediately thought of SIM products and
how databases [handi]cap performance and storage of log data and offer only
limited emulation of logic engines because it's all gotta work out to some
SELECT statement on the back end. Then I remembered the logs are dumb (log
analysis is not dumb, but log content is) and hardware is cheap.
