What are your most important Web Browser features?


Curious as to what the most important features in a Web Browser for people here is.

Mine are:

* WebGL Rendering
* WebSocket Support
* Bookmarks (Although I don't use it often)
* Tabbed Browsing
* AdBlocking Plugins
* Downloads Section
* Open Recent Tabs
Will add more if I remember more


* Security
* Reliability/stability
* Multi-line scrollable bookmarks toolbar
* Repositionable multi-colored, multi-row tabs
* A customizable searchbar
* Session saving
* A functional statusbar
* ad and script blocking
* Userscript and custom CSS capabilities
* Custom user defined buttons
* A souped up sidebar
* Dev tools (firebug)
* fast bookmark searching
* Easy, immediate access to everything (don't force hiding things behind complicated menu systems) Hamburger buttons suck!
* a real titlebar
* UI colors that respect the user's desktop theme
* Single window mode

Different "instance" in each tab, so if one crashes, they don't all crash.

First of all security, and first of all the possibility to disable/enable Javascript (by a dedicated key or by disabling Javascript for all the websites excluding the trusted ones).

As an alternative, or as an additional layer of security, I deeply appreciate a sandbox.

Then Ghostery, AdBlock, the possibility to improve the readability of certain websites, HTML5 to see videos.

Number one is: standards support without any prefixes supported by default (no -moz-, -webkit-, -o- or -ms-).

No BS in this matter like google does with MathML.
If you don't want to support some parts of standard don't claim you support it fully.

Other features? Look at old Opera :)
