 That's why I didn't see the need of BString at the moment, even if I
don't have the code in mind yet.

Concerning the lack of flexibility with the maneer I connect classes
between them, I had the cURL interface in mind while drafting my
document, rather than QT or Java framework. It's more oriented on the
simplicity of implementation from the developer side (but with a lot
of configuration options). But you're right, I used QT and Java for a
while and the flexibility they offer is quite powerful. However, I
don't know the Chromium network backend but I will take a look and try
to update my rough draft. (I read on previous haiku-dev mailing list
posts that you agree on using Chromium code within Haiku ?)
