That is an advantage of BibleDesktop.  The disadvantage is that if I
want to go to a reference like Genesis 3:3 then I don't get any
context at all, so I am forced to go to Genesis 3 or Genesis 3:1 - 10
or whatever else I may decide to.  At least with a chapter-centric one
I would generally get some context automatically.
