there should be more. Really.
Based on an older idea: The Webtop.
this could mean: create an "app" which is 500x200 in pixels. This box can be moved around, snapped, dragged, dropped. It doesn't depend on anything. Its just there and does something. Maybe an online radio, a chat, an calculator. There could be an extra app-bar or somewhat.
File linking (6,7)
What happens when you click a link to media file in your browser? Yeah, it opens the file in a new tab or in the same tab. Why not open the image, video or music file in a new overlay that is always on top, movable and includes the typical controls?
Volume control (2)
Every tab should have a slider to control the volume. It also need some visual feedback, to signalize that the tab generates sound.
Tabs should go to sleep if not need to reduce cpu-power. There should be a button to prevent this behavior. See the FireFox Addon Tab Bar.
MORE TO COME
APPS (don't ignore apps - they need a fine place to breathe on your browser!)
ZUI (Zooming User Interfaces)
Firefox Design Challenge results and other not that bad ideas
Little sketch to visualize the problem of presenting the todays non-linear browsing history.
