#125 Browser for the advanced user

Mozilla 1.0 should features not found in other browsers like

- image and popup window blocking support - advanced cookie management

Frontends for this should be completed where the backend is already implemented. Lots advanced users use cookie management tools and filtering proxies. This is the kind of audience we should try to appeal to and win over.

At the same time Mozilla should not feel less than other browsers. For this we need UI polish and consistent behavior. Mozilla should not surprise you with weird focus handling or other unexpected quirks. Mozilla should not take significantly longer for some rendering tasks (like complex forms) as its predecessors, the user experience should never feel like taking a step back.

In short, we are mostly on target already, we just need to polish our best features and bring the rest on par with NN4.
