James Mickens is describing the Atlantis Browser which is a very minimal high security & performant browser which forces each application to ship its own runtime (including languages, renderer, etc) with ideas on backwards compatibility with existing (js,html,css) web applications.
Im reminded by alan kay talking about the early browsers (unknown reference) basically what if applications shipped their runtimes. I kind of thought of a more general & inspectable html at the time but i think this is very interesting too
