I wish Ben luck on this venture. However I think it's going to be very difficult to succeed in making this a successful business venture because it'll take a lot of work persuading companies to offer the cash to add new features.

Well I hope I'm wrong in that predection and that enough companies will pay money to add new features to the browser. I'd really like to see this work out. If we had companies paying money to add new features to Beonex (and all changes get submitted back to Mozilla) we'd really begin to see a Mozilla that's not just led by AOL marketing in its design. Now to the hard part, persuading companies to pay.
