Re: An Emacs plug-in for a browser (Firefox?)

    Switching constantly between Emacs and Firefox (e.g., by making Emacs
    open links via a separate Firefox application) is inefficient.

When you say "switching", what does that refer to?
Are you talking about a UI-level operation?
Or do you mean process-switching, something done by the kernel?

In what sense is it inefficient?

      Thus, to answer
    your original question, "embedding" means delegating the contents of an
    Emacs window (or part of an Emacs window) to a web browser process, such
    as Mozilla Gecko or Webkit.

To delegate display to a web browser process would normlly mean running
a browser rather than running just part of one.
