mrchocky: "it would be orders of magnitude cheaper for ROL to support existing browser development", but lets see how viable it is, let's say ROL put up the money (or provided a programmer) for someone to work on a browser for 6 months, let's say a very very cheap 25000/year programmer.
25000 / 2 = 12500 ukp
12500 = 83.bit select subscriptions @ 150ukp a time.
So it's viable if at the end of the it 83 *more* people buy Select.
"All problems can be fixed in 6 months by one person"
"A programmer of the correct skillset can be found, and willing to take on a 6 month contract at a below industry rate"
"People would pay for Select just to offer ROL a return on their investment even though the browser wouldn't necesarily require it"
