There are five browser cores:
- webkit
- chromium
- gecko
- servo
- youtube-dl, which ended up implementing a full-fledged browser in python to keep successfully downloading videos

@developit even with a build step would you choose HTM over JSX?

Curious about why and when you use it.

Buddhist development:
* There should be no code for the future or past, only the present
* Acknowledge that everything is connected when you add a feature
* Karma will cycle back so avoid shortcuts or clever tricks
* Code is ephemeral, don’t get attached
* Meditate on your problem and the answer will present itself
