I don't have time for another list, but here's one suggestion..

Apache and other servers would probably be more efficient if Mozilla
didn't *insist* on wasting keepalive potential by blasting servers with
parallel requests. Ideally it needs a smarter algorithm for deciding
whether to wait slightly longer and reuse an open connection or try
to save time by opening more connections. If Mozilla could remember
that a server is willing to keepalive, then waiting that little bit
longer is less of a gamble.
