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."

Often times, when you go back to an existing site, even if its text content has changed, the format of the page stays the same. Why not have Mozilla assume the page still has the old format until something changes it. You could even pre-render using that format and any old cached images (and cached css or js files if that is possible). Of course, if the page's format has changed, Mozilla would reflow to the new format; but that would be the exception, rather than the rule.
