Exactly what I had HOPED/tried to say:
monster-browser= application-centric;
mc= data centric.

Applications have short lives & relate to the latest buzz-word "experience".
Data has long life & if you lose your data, you're screwed.
I'm getting to like some of the facilities of kde.
For me kde, wraps multiple msS which each wrap a dir.
The ultimate items of value are the files.
I.e. a data centric view.
Which is [just by coincidence] the O.O. view:
 the 'methods'/fetch-utilities can change: I use a script of lists of URLs, via
lynx -dump '<URL>' >> accuimulator
to fetch most httpS, these days.
I've been continually refining my 'fetch utilities'.
So, you don't want your data to be married to it's fetcher.
