I agree, and I neglected to follow-up, but this - 'surfing web pages
with TB' - is what I meant when I said the 'browser should be ripped out
at its roots'...

I understand that we need an HTML rendering engine for rendering HTML
emails, but that should be a very stripped down engine, no need for a
full blown browser engine. Personally, I don't see a problem with
completely disabling JS in the rendering of the email itself (separate
from magic done by Addons using JS)...
