What's the point of embedding a web browser in TexShop ?

Why not embed a mail app, a newsreader, iTunes and QuickTime ? This should be pretty easy (all these apps are standard with Mac OS); but how could this possibly help anyone typesetting books or articles ?

Embedding the TexLive Manager, and enabling on the fly install of missing packages à la Miktex  makes sense (this may be achieved via TexShop engines); but why on Earth would anyone want to embed a web browser in TexShop ?
