[webkit-dev] Top 100 sites browsing tests proprosal

See my posts about archive.org-based performance tests. We can use the same
infrastructure to make sure WebKit doesn't crash :)

In fact... running top 100 websites as performance tests might just do the
trick because we'll catch any crashes (can't catch assertion failures
though :( ).
