The LOD browser switch was developed in order to help you as a developer of Web of Data applications with the following two problems: if you want to provide a link to browse the data in your system, you had to 1) decide which of the several browsers to choose, and 2) make your app depend on the availability and continued maintenance of this external service.
The LOD browser switch relieves you of this problem. Instead of linking to any particular service, you can now link to all of them — and let the user decide which one to choose, by simply using the following URL and append the URI of the entity where the browsing should begin.http://browse.semanticweb.org/?uri=
The user can also decide to let their browser remember their selection, after which the link becomes totally transparent and the user will be taken directly to their prefered service.
You may want to argue that this indeed solves the first problem, but not the second — now you depend on our service instead of the browser. This is true. But since this switch is far simpler than any of the browsers, it is probably also much more stable and much less likely to break. Heck, it's just three dozen lines of codes.
