From the second that Origin was announced I never expected it to be anything less than what Steamworks is for Valve games. Origin is *the* friends list, *the* server browser, *the* community integration, and more. It doesn't make sense that you would require a web browser to launch the game, that would be pretty stupid even by EA's standards. It'll be integrated right with the game. Much like how Steamworks uses a web browser for much of its stuff in-game and out-of-game.

Like it, hate it, whatever, but that's almost certainly what it'll be. And personally for me, I'd rather have a fully integrated system like that than some Gamespy shit or half-baked EA account system that Bad Company 2 had.

It wasn't in the alpha though. Your friends list on the Battlelog was not the friends you had in Origin, nor was the browser part of Origin. It loaded the game through Origin after you'd selected a server through the website and opted to join. Friends on origin didn't show up in Battlelog, and vice versa.
