Web browser changes wanted

Update. Thanks to Joel for linking to this post (...probably the reason for you reading this).

Another good post from Joel on Software. This one about wanted changes in web browser. As a web developer I find many tasks more time consuming and difficult to accomplish when building a web application - we develop a web-based ERP system. Most of these tasks could be overcomed by implementing more standards which web developers can use. Joel list a good handful of changes he would want, and I have added some:

I think Joel covered many good points, I especially agree with him when he talks about standard controls for uploading & drag-drop (we have made a custom active-x object to do this), better content editing (could the msdhtml control be any worse? And what about other browsers!!?), compiled JavaScript (some scripts can be become slow), standardized windows features such as treeview, menu etc.
