embedded browser

It would be great to have an embedded browser, especially if you could download files directly into a Audacity.
I am a songwriter and am thinking about ways people can collaborate over the web. I thing Audacity, with the correct
additions could be the perfect tool for web collaboration.

A similar question has been raised on the developers mailing list in the past.
The developers are very reluctant to add any type of web integration into Audacity because it opens up a huge can of worms regarding security issues. For any internet security issues the Audacity developers can say with certainty “nothing to do with us” because Audacity does not integrate with the Internet at all.
HTML links in Audacity is a different question and not a problem because from an HTML link the web integration is from the users web browser and not from Audacity.
