Open Thread: What do You Want From a Browser?

We’ve written about Firefox, covered avant-garde niche browsers, and looked at the impending Google Chrome launch. But there’s a sizable community whose browser opinions we haven’t looked at: you, the web working public. When was the last time someone asked you what you wanted in a browser, as opposed to just handing you a new piece of whizbang software and telling you you’d love it?

Well, here’s your chance. Forget about Firefox extensions and IE rendering modes and Safari speed and Opera standards-compliance for the moment, and imagine you’ve got a line into the development teams. What features are you missing in the current crop of browsers that would actually make your life easier and more productive? What promises do you wish they’d deliver on? What would make you switch to a new browser for your own web work?
