Proposals for Incorporating Machine Learning in Mozilla Firefox

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."

How about using something like "whats related" to generate suggested sites for when a person is bored and wants to explore new stuff. Basically the browser gets an idea of the type of sites the person visits and can suggest other sites that the person may be interested in based on their history.
