  In app browsers are very helpful. For example I hate how going in links in Mail takes me to Safari. I don't care for the Gmail app much but I like that when I click a link in Gmail, it opens in an in-app browser instead.   But beyond that, there are tons of reasons why in-app browsers are useful or desired.

No, its not a security hole. It show inter-app communication works and is designed to work. Apps can have URL schemes like "navigon://" or "informant://" or what not.

Haven't been to a tech talk in awhile, but I did when they first started doing them. I found them to be very helpful as an "update" to our WWDC experience. This was a few years back before WWDC always sold out.

I've bought a ton of routers but only Apples have run pretty much without any issues for years. It's the only kind I buy. Period.
When I traveled throughout the south - Texas <-> Tennessee - Apple Maps did great. In Denver, its not so good. 
I think because we've ready complained with specifics for the last year. By now its just we are tired of any lack of updates, while Lightroom continues getting major improvements in its rendering.
I use it all the time. My kids use it. My friends use it. It's useful when you know your SO is coming home from shopping and needs help.
