You-Centric: A Sketch of The Future of Browsers

A must-watch keynote for anyone interested about the development of the web. With a few UI sketches and some ideas of scripting APIs, Aza Raskin presents a vision of a better browser platform. It includes authentication (already started in Weave), payment, contacts, having your friends help in making trust and security decisions, and using language for task-centric and extensible functionality (Ubiquity).
I was also pretty receptive to the idea of transforming local storage into global storage using synchronization (server or P2P replication?), switching away from SQL for client-side storage (LINQ interface?) and increasing the hackability in general.
