Universal document viewer, like "Konqueror":http://www.konqueror.org/.

It features viewing all kinds of documents (like PDF, images, texts...) over not only HTTP, but any protocol implemented. It uses KParts (embeddable document viewers) and KIO-slaves (plugins for accessing different protocols) and ties them together to make a truly universal "browser". It doesn't implement anything itself, but hosts reusable pieces of software. Also it features unified means of authenticating (KWallet), suppling cookies (for HTTP), which allows to strip Web of its hyped-up uniqueness and erase border between local and web browsing. Unfortunately, it's unmaintained: KDE4 version lacks some important features and is buggy, while KDE3 one is still awesome as hell, but does not support modern JS shit and is only useful for browsing well-written sites like this one, which are a minority.
