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."

Well I have the beginnings of some code that works along those lines (the idea is to adjust the zoom level so that the most common font size for paragraphs on a page is the preferred size that you specify in prefs). I'll post it as an extension after I have time to finish writing it (annoying distractions like a graduation cermony and making sure I have somewhere to live and money to pay the rent are getting in the way at the moment ;) )
