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."

When closing the app, save the state of every window and all it's tabs. When opening the app, restore to this environment. See Gnome's session management and OmniWeb 5's implementation for ideas.

Rationale: Sometimes people really do need to close their environment. Being able to return to exactly where you left off is very user friendly and reduces the stress put on users when they need to log out for whatever reason.
