Just wanted to flag an item that might be of interest to you on the
0.86 Browse roadmap "export for offline viewing (Web page - HTML only,
Web page - Complete)":
I know this doesn't make a first class 'Activity' out of a page, but
seems to have quite a feature overlap with your project. It would
allow Browse to keep any page to the Journal so it can be resumed off-
line and/or distributed to other users (via Journal entry sharing
already in 0.84). It would also allow content providers an easy way to
type rich web sites/pages by just zipping them up.
