- Filter out sites I flag or rate as seen, don't show, ok, marginal, appropriate, in-approprite, offensive...etc
This, so much.
I think there's a fundamental difference between searchers who want to make their own filters, and those who don't. I want the tools to filter my results, but Google is too fixated on doing all the thinking for everyone. This is one of the reasons Twitter is so popular with a subset of people: your feed is what you make it, and you have to put the work in to craft your own filters.
I'm not too keen on the idea of having results open automatically. Apart from the performance impact on websites, there are security implications; I don't rely on Google's warnings to inform me which sites to avoid.
