Thanks Ben for responding!

It was more of a thought, less so of a goal, and the things you've mentioned are exactly what helps us to throw light on everything that behind the page. I think my thoughts are not coherent on this, and I'm sorry for that.

More frankly, I was kind of split between the following things:

  1. W3 web standards are for making things common for everyone to consume.
  2. Frameworks are for developers to use abstraction to deliver content/applications.
  3. GDPR is for making information available, openness, transparency, privacy etc.
  4. XAI (which is where the thought came out of) is driving the need for developers to make their inherent models show what they're doing, even for laypersons, or business people who might not know what's under the hood.
  5. Myriads of libraries, stacks are there to get the stuff to the end user, who in most fairness probably would not care how the delivery is done.

In a very naive sense, how can a browser/or no browser tell you what's happening (without using any tool etc.) and show you things behind the scenes while they happen for an average Joe, in case they'd like to know.

I think I'm having the following feeling writing this: However Thank you so much again for responding! :)
