[ Subject tweaked, since that what you're proposing isn't a new

There's considerable discussion of this in
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=80713 .

Note that there are potential security issues because the size of
the content of a page potentially leaks information (e.g., whether
you're logged in to a site, etc.).
