I am feed up of having to install full packages just to get one thing. With
some distros, this becomes even worse. And as I, there must be more people.

Now that are wise words: the user decides which browser. Lot of adventages,
and I do not see any disadventage (no HTML custom tricks? all HTML docs
should be "any browser", even if the browser is one with speaker for blind
people).

So Gimp help should be a set of HTML files and a small exec to launch the
preferred browser (calling process already running if needed, a la moz remote).
