Proposals for Incorporating Machine Learning in Mozilla 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."

I agree. Firefox urgently needs a proper FTP browser (with a drag and drop interface). Either make it part of Firefox or produce a new product (which could be linked with Firefox -- I think Thunderbird is going to be linked with Firefox, at least that is what the "Mail" icon in Firefox 0.9 suggests). It bugs the hell out of me that MSIE is the only way to go if you want an in-browser FTP interface.
