The one thing I really dislike is the decision to make "help" spawn a browser. A lot of the time I'm ssh'd in remotely to a machine. I don't want (or need) a web browser but I do need the help.
It's like GNU's whole info system; *well written* man pages are fine. Why create a whole other tree of information that has to be looked after?
Help for a shell must live within the shell.
