vimperator handles this with 'buffers'. Pressing 'b' gives a list like:

1: BashGuide - Greg's Wiki #
2: UsingFind - Greg's Wiki #
3: Arch Linux Forums / Post your .vimrc #
4: dotfiles/.vimrc - #
5: Google Calendar #
6: dotfiles/.fonts.conf - #
7: create group vim color - Google Search #

Minus the favicons, could be accomplished with dmenu?
