Make it as light as possible. If you want bookmarks then keep them on a server somewhere as a list of links. Just make it browse pages.

Using Midori yesterday I wished for the ability to specify the size of all text on all pages. Most of the text renders much too large to be usable for me.

I don't normally need a traditional address field. URLs are better entered from a popup IMHO. Otherwise they are a waste of screen space.
