The Perfect Browser

My ideal browser would have a number of unusual features:

  • It would give the user the power to explicitly override no-cache directives in HTTP headers so that you could force caching of certain pages.

  • If desired, it would cache completely parsed pages so that hitting the Back button would cause instant redisplay of the previous page, rather than re-retrieval of nonparsed HTML from disk — or worse, from the network.

  • It would disable all animation in GIFs with a single button.

  • It would optionally display all HTTP traffic, including traffic before encryption with SSL. This would be especially useful for seeing just what data is being sent with an HTTP POST.

  • HTML source and HTTP headers for every downloaded page would be optionally visible in the editor of your choice and edited content would be redisplayed, including dynamically generated pages.
