i don't see how this could work well (or the vimperator buffer)

* url is not enough, at least url + title is needed
* removing an item from the list is not as easy as with tabs
* where is page position stored? (in case of a long article one might
want to store the position)
* where is page history stored?
* there are stateful sites (session, filled in forms,..)

maybe one can implement dumping and restoring functionality with a
nice interface, but it's not trivial to make as easy as keeping 50
tabs around
