My belief is that browsers are now so fast that speed is no longer and issue. Unless we see a performance breakthrough that offers a speed jump that's an order of magnitude better than what we've got now, the end users on the ground aren't going to notice or care.

I'd like to see the big browser players (Microsoft, Mozilla, Google, Opera and Apple) now concentrate on improving the security model. Google has a pretty good model with its sandbox, Microsoft's protected mode is also good, but there's still room for improvement, especially with regards to plugin isolation.
