Love the idea. Note that there are often a site nav (via some over done
bar), and a page nav set of links, I'd like to be able to undisplay both,
so that I can skip to the content, others, however, would not like this so
please make it an option and add a keybinding so it's not global.

You'd need to add flash and "livevine" (or similar), support for most
Out of curiosity, what site(s) are you thinking of?
I prefer to play after downloading, if you find that troublesome or
impossible for your use case, as might occur for such things as internet
radio, then consider doing "curl --silent URL | ffplay - " or similar
(or try looking into an icecast (or similar), client).

Please, I hate horizontal scrolling, if it can't fit in 1024x768 window
then I'd prefer to not to visit the site.

I agree, but it would be better if the paragraph that was cut could be
scrolled to the top as a whole (perhaps with an > where you left off).

I have a dog.
  See the dog. See
it eat. Funny, funny

But not everyone would appreciate such a feature so add an option.
