Re: [platform-help-dev] Is embedded browser preferred in stand-alone help.

Stand-alone help and embedded browser have been enabled to work together
again - in builds > 20040505.
By default, if org.eclipse.help.ui plug-in (with prerequisites) is
installed (as opposed to running very minimal set of plug-ins, stand-alone
help will open embedded browser on Windows and on Linux (if Mozilla >=1.4
GTK2 build installed).

Help for a workbench is shown in embedded browser by default (on Windows
and Linux).  Yes, the embedded help browser is back in M8, and this time it
runs in the same process as Eclipse (sharing SWT event loops with Eclipse
application).  The embedded browser however does not work as is in the
stand-alone help, and some effort is required to fix it.

I would like to learn whether products using stand-alone help prefer seeing
embedded help browser, or a system browser opened when calling stand-alone
