To get information on the *proportion* of users who couldn't view a site, a range of browsers would have to support the option, and reports would have to be sent when the site displayed succesfully too. Of course, webmasters can often get this information if they want it enough by good analysis of the web logs to follow user paths through the site.

Your second idea - having the browser auto-report in the background would work well though. Issue a "GET /browser-error-report?error=xxx", and webmasters could grep them out of their logs. They would also have an incentive for fixing them: decreased loading and bandwidth per user.
