Pop-up windows opening or pages being downloaded sometimes hold the browser that
busy that you can not open an other window for a while. If you could, you would
not have these irritating waiting times. (Is this a browser or a OS thing or both?)

I think it is a very nice speed feature if the browser was designed that it made
'seamless simultaneous browsing' possible.

If the browser is busy, the user always can do something else on another site in
the mean time. In that way you can easily open for example your banking site,
your email site, etc. Which you might need simultaneous.

Reproducible: Always

It already is. What you're talking about is the use of multiple threads in the
application. Firefox is already using that, and so does every other browser that
exists, like Internet Explorer, Safari or Opera.

Ofcourse, it can always be improved. But when 1 page is using a lot of cpu
(running a Flash animation, or Java or Javascript f.i.), it will always
influence the other pages too.
