Let's just hope this stays in the realm of extensions - I have no use for such features and wouldn't like to see them become part of the core.

I agree with you, adding such features to the core will surely put off a number of users who like the browser simply because of it 'neatness'.

As if information overflow wasn't enough already in everyday life. Now people (well, some I guess) will try to squeeze in some 1984-time at lunch break or after dinner.
Don't we meet at the pubs or in the parks to exchange our life's, hopes, experience and feelings anymore. Does it all have to be 1's and 0's designed to make anyone else believe we are somewhat better or different than mother nature (and our character trades and way of life) made us?
I do love the web for it's efficiency and helpfulness as a resource and tool. But folks: second and third life's?
OK, as said, there will be demand and the requestors will steer developments if economy of scale is a factor. Me though: scaling out of that proposal.

I saw two people at an event last year wearing badges proclaiming their on-line names at a certain forum. Johnny no-mates or what?

Probably Johnny-lots-of-mates actually. Take sites like Flickr for instance, where users like to meet up for groups in real life down the pub. This bound to lead to a whole circle of new friends.
Anyway, this browser idea sounds like they're reacting to that other project that added blogging tools to Firefox - what was it called? Flock?
