(01:13:30 PM) n8fr8: i think the main question at hand is can we / or do we need some portion of the torbutton add-on?
(01:13:39 PM) amoghbl1: Since the last news update, I've changes te landing page
(01:13:54 PM) amoghbl1: I honestly don't think we do...
(01:14:12 PM) amoghbl1: So tor-button seems to handle stuff to do with the tor connection right?
(01:18:38 PM) n8fr8: well, aside from that portion, i think it also handles stuff with tab isolation possibly

(01:20:39 PM) n8fr8: 3.2. Major Chrome Observers
(01:20:43 PM) n8fr8: seems to be the critical part
(01:22:00 PM) n8fr8: i think if we disable all chrome/xul UI components, the rest of the code should be fine
(01:22:08 PM) n8fr8: we don't need to offer preferences, buttons, etc
(01:26:12 PM) n8fr8: otherwise, amoghbl1, maybe we can ask mikeperry and the tbb-dev team what the most critical portions are and start there
