It would seem to me that a company could design some client side software that had a good interface and handled all the tasks you perform on a web page. This piece of software would communicate, via the Internet, directly to the company's server. The information transmitted would be minimal and would speed up transactions time, and allow more users to be online at one time. Eliminating, as much as possible, the web browser.

Yea...like when I'm playing MS-Golf99. I've got a large and powerful application running locally and some information is being sent over the internet to a game server that allows me to interactively crush my opponents. ;)

I think that's a great idea.
