To see places, things, people, ideas, that one normally could not see.  I too kinda like the idea.  What would be the perfect icon to make?

Far-sighted has a negative association, medical and/or social, with translations the intended positive meaning may not be that clear, and Farsight may be a result instead of the way to get there.

I'd avoid links with any medical condition or medial problem, for one.

I like farsight but André makes a good point. I guess any name has to be considered in translation.
Quest is also good, and doesn't seem to have been used as a browser name, though there is a game called browserquest. Don't know how it translates.

Probably good, because of the Q and because of the fact that there are and were brands like Qwest. In general Wikipedia's list of languages can be used to find out if such a word is known in several languages. AFAICT the word Quest is sort of known in the limited list of the official eComstation 1.x languages (Dutch, English,  German, Italian), and one may remember classic DOS games like the Police Quest series. You don't have to be fluent in English to sort of understand what Quest refers too.

Apparently In Italian the word Quest is Cerca (seach'ish), so a list of Wikipedia languages doesn't mean the Q-word is know as such.
