a browser that says clearly, after you have hit the enter key, instead of "waiting...", something like the following:

"your request was received by...

-the keyboard (and if this is last thing on the list call 5551212 for a new motherboard)

-the motherboard ( and if this is last thing on the list call 5551212 for a new port)

-the port (etc)

-the router

-the modem

-the server

-the other server

       more than a bit vague about what you're trying to do here. Yes, the running commentary, on Firefox at least, is still pretty dodgy - perhaps an addon of some sort. You realize that the browser normally has no idea as to what's happening in between it and the site though, don't you ?
