You're correct, we have yet to implement a browse feature.  The vision 
for how one would work hasn't yet gelled in my mind.  If people have 
suggestions, I'd like to hear it.  I expect you can do better than just 
"next thread" and "previous thread", using the power in XQuery.

Within a thread you can easily view all the messages.  Go here:


You'll see above the message there's a thread view holding all the posts 
so far in this thread.

The example URL which you included above was you asking a question for 
which there was no reply, so no real thread to be seen.

Yep, it's already done, if you look at a message that's in a thread.
