Hey Daniel,

What is the direction of what you are thinking about?
I do not know about a browser natively support option.
The options I have seen until now are a local client in java or other
languages which implements the whole secure level and the browser uses
this layer to contact either a proxy or using a route as the default GW.

I think that it depends on the security level of the information in most
cases.
If I do not trust the client\end machine such as in an Internet cafe I
assume it will be pretty unsmart to assume any such implementation like
pki will help.
If I do have a basic level of trust on the machine but not the network,
it will be pretty simple to use a secure client like used in many cases
with ssh tunnels.
