    Ever dreamt of a Firefox that feels truly yours? Imagine launching new tabs to a custom-crafted website, hosted right on your machine. No internet connection needed, just instant access to your personalized info dashboard, productivity tools, or even an immersive offline game. This isn't a futuristic fantasy; it's the potential of integrating local websites as Home and New Tab options in Firefox.

Why is this important?

    Blazing-fast loading: Ditch the web delay and experience instantaneous tab launches powered by local files. Optimize your workflow and maximize productivity.
    Unleash customization: Break free from cookie-cutter homepages and craft your ideal browsing experience. Design dashboards, integrate productivity tools, or build stunning offline galleries, all powered by your local HTML and CSS.
    A competitive edge: No other major browser offers this transformative feature. Firefox can claim the lead in offline customization and cater to users who value privacy and performance.

Beyond personal benefits, this opens exciting possibilities:

    Curated website marketplace: Imagine a Firefox store dedicated to downloadable local websites, catering to diverse interests and needs. From educational tools to productivity dashboards, the possibilities are endless.
    Offline web development playground: Firefox can become the go-to platform for aspiring web developers to test and showcase their creations without needing online servers.

I'm passionate about Firefox and its potential to empower users. This feature isn't just a convenience; it's a revolutionary step towards truly personalized browsing. Adding local websites as Home/New Tab options would cement Firefox's position as the browser of choice for users who value speed, customization, and efficiency.

Please consider this proposal and unlock the boundless possibilities of offline browsing.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

Strollin' around

Having PWAs back would make this even more exiting.

That would give each local website an app like feel. The Firefox store could be the go to marketplace for local as well as online PWA's (each running in it's own space, with it's on icon and may be even enhancements specific to them).
