Driver Free Peripheral and Internal Hardware

The utopia in computers can happen only if we free ourselves from "Drivers". I mean Software Drivers. It has to interface by a serial protocol close to the TCP/IP.

It needs to only identify itself to the computer as what type of data it can send or receive. Even that has to be from a tiny server on the device, which can be mapped by a address and accessed by any Browser on any OS. The Browser can have the configuration GUI. This is similar to some Router Configuration.

Driver Free Peripheral and Internal Hardware

Driver free, connect a new peripheral on the USB/Firewire or LAN or Wi-Fi, Now In browser you have a TCP/IP or Ethernet Device Explorer. Browse to the device, it can have a IP Addr. like 11.724.55.66.77.11 . The firewall blocks all communication of this device to the outer world. Now setup the device on the browser, now any software on the PC can communicate with that peripheral to do the job.
