Goodbye Firefox?

Scoble reckons that web browsers are no longer necessary, when you have RSS and a newsreader.

I'm pretty much inclined to agree, getting content via a newsreader is much more efficient for regular, "bombard-me-with-information" sources that you can subscribe to. However, I think he disregards the importance of irregular searches that lead to the discovery of new information.

My RSS newsreader doesn't let me search for pictures of Notre Dame to include in my assignment on Paris. It also doesn't help me find the documentation for that obscure method in the Java 1.4 API. Rather, it's horses for courses, and I think the web browser still has some running left to do.
