If the websites look at all "app-liked" rather than "website-like," to do even what you describe you need some kind of HTTP-based control protocol (e.g., SOAP) and a portable runtime (in this case, XUL).

So with all this infrastructure, you might as well do more than simply having smart links and a few custom settings!
