A HTML parser is defenitely a thing which isn't only used by browsers.
Search engines, archivation and comparison tools, web page translators --
they all need a parser.
About websites like forums and blogs, it can be a bit trickier: many of
them introduce their own markup (BBcode, LiveJournal tags) in addition to
allowing some HTML, so they'd need a modified version of HTML 5 parser.
