This may be a bit of far-fetched pipe dream, but Mozilla could use a new edge in the current age of browser technology. This idea is basically to create an in-browser Notion-alternative around open or saved web URLs, possibly with some graph view (a la Cotoami/Obsidian/etc.) which probably sounds crazy but hear me out.

Individuals and organizations are growing out of web-based office tools that rigidly define types of "files" and instead moving towards powerful and intuitive everything-workspace platforms like Notion and Airtable. With the address bar in Firefox auto-completing to suggest tabs open elsewhere alongside bookmarks, and features/plugins like Tree Style Tabs, and Tab Grouping, and Multi-Acconut Containers, the functionality of simple Bookmarks has a lot of overlap with "open" tabs and one day the distinction might disappear.

I'm envisioning a "workspace" view, which by default might just lay out all your bookmarks and tabs as thumbnails grouped by tab-group or folder, but which can be arbitrarily rearranged, annotated, combined with notes (rip), and shared or published in something akin to a mix of social bookmarking, wiki, or inspiration/interest boards with optional integration with some sort of social media platform *cough cough* Pocket *cough*

Maybe this could even be an avenue for monetization as organizations could want to pay to have this hosted with access restricted to company email addresses.

Also, it would be very nice to adopt a local-first approach to syncing data where possible. This makes all data instantly available and editable locally, while being able to sync reliably when a connection is open. There were no good ways to do this with formatted text until now thanks to a new CRDT algorithm called Peritext:

Really nice video about it here:
