For one, google toolbar isn't open source IIRC and neither is Netcraft, so
we cannot ship with them. Not only does it violate our software guidelines,
but it would be a pain having to sugarize them without seeing the source. We
shoudn't have to worry about browser exploits once we get activity isolation
turned on. So, exept for phishing protection, which is open source and
implemented in firefox already, there is not much we can do or have to for
that matter.
