Ajax based supercomputing !
What is AJAX? (on Wiki)
For example when you are surfing an ajaxified webpage, in most cases you won't need to reload the whole page to access a particular content. Ajax will facilitate the transfer of content in the backround! ( see: google search ajaxified )

Anyways do checkout the alexa stats for yahoo, google and youtube.
Okay, thats all right, but where is the point ?
The big point is in utilizing the processing power of the web browsers that access these web services on daily basis. What I am talking about is distributed computing through web. Now you might think it will be damn slow and it depends on people's wish to let the browser window remain. But, we do have a solution for that, we can ajaxify all the links, so websites like youtube can easily retain a user for about half an hour for average.
Given the fact that these web giants get a lot of hits a day, we can always assume that we will have a great processing power in this distributed network.
So guys at yahoo, microsoft, google, ibm, ... Think about it dudes!
Anyways don't worry about patents, I'm not gonna file one, you guys proceed.
Well guys, thats all from idea box of a school passout.
