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."

-The Firefox we have today is sorely lacking something...a digital pet! Firefox 2 should have a built in digital pet for the sole purpose of having a use for machine learning. At least one of the creature choices should be a fox (duh). It should go from an infant to a towering titan. Except don't make the stupid thing crap all over the screen. Oh, excuse my language I meant to say, "intelligent thing". Firefox 2 should have upgraded AI and allow you to teach your Creature to lead armies in massive crusades. And a better graphics engine.
