Still fresh, damnit!

Maybe, but personally I tend to often use a terminal when browsing - I may be using the browser to look up how to do something in the terminal for instance. I guess if it's coded well I could still alt-tab between the framebuffer version and my terminal in X, but in my experience that tends to result in rendering errors as important things are not redrawn automatically, which can be a bit of a pain to sort out. Sometimes I'm also listening to music or recorded radio programmes in deadbeef - the abilty to be able to quickly alt-tab to deadbeef and skip to the next track or go back 5% of the current audio file is sometimes useful.
