Proposals for Incorporating Machine Learning in Mozilla Firefox

Friday June 18th, 2004

Blake Ross writes: "I will be doing research this summer at Stanford with Professor Andrew Ng about how we can incorporate machine learning into Firefox. We're looking for ideas that will make Firefox 2.0 blow every other browser out of the water. People who come up with the best 3-5 ideas win Gmail accounts, and if we implement your idea you'll be acknowledged in both our paper and in Firefox credits. Your idea will also be appreciated by the millions of people who use Firefox :-). We'll also entertain Thunderbird proposals."

This one is a little more difficult to implement. Basically, by using a combination of the cache and history, one can search the content of pages available in the history.

Rationale: Say you want to return to a page but can't remember the Title nor URL. You remember a few words from the page, though. By searching the contents of the history by means of using the cache, you can find the pages that have said text in their contents.
