"Dear Browser Developers,

"Hi. I'm a technical guy who works on a variety of operating systems and have been working with Linux and open source applications for a very long time (Circa 1995) and I have one simple request for your wonderful product that needs various plugins to operate correctly on websites. INCLUDE THEM WITH THE DAMN BROWSER. Pretty please.

"Including the most common plugins with the browser would solve so many problems and make our, the end users, lives so much simpler. And I know you want that too, don't you? You see, many who use, or would use, your product want a trouble-free experience and if we have to spend many frustrating hours downloading, installing and troubleshooting browser plugin problems just so we can see someone's Flash presentation--well, it just isn't worth it."
