If you were a Product Manager of Web Browser product how would you make the next version better e.g. Chrome or Internet Explorer or FireFox?
We spend a big amount of time on browsing, and even on the latest Web Browsers missing a feature the way I feel, if I would be the PM, then I certainly try to implement/improve this feature and introduce in the next version.
We could leverage cloud technology to make the browser’s experience better. Based on the appropriate business case web browser related data could be stored in Cloud and those data would be accessible via Web APIs.
Example: This feature will provide various Internet usage data analytics Web APIs, Internet browsing monitoring Web APIs (e.g. parental control, blocking to certain urls) so that appropriate business, users can make suitable applications.
(Disclaimer: such feature may exist in Web Browser on the way to other.)

Cloud based multitenant architecture to store device wise and login based, all/selected Internet history, bookmarks, settings etc.
Business Model (if any)
– Application developers/Business can sale their applications
$$- Various plans to see the analytics e.g. up-to few device its free, but more than that some charges, use multiple device at once. (e.g. universities, cyber cafes, small business would like to observe the internet usage pattern, enterprise users who works remotely)
-Web APIs providers can charge some amount to access to premium APIs
e.g. Free/Sync to Store Internet related data
|Issues||Similar product/service: Chrome Browser
· Need to review the existing related patents
· Security, Privacy (If more than one user using the same device)
