You mean ANY window??? It would be quite weird having the browser would be really annoying to surf the web like that. If you just refere to terminals, you can use Eterm or aterm that have pseudo-transparency (they work perfectly).

As for the taskbat, Fluxbox (pretty close to BB) has this ability in its devel version 0.9.9 (but is completely stable, don't pay attention to that "devel").
