Right. mozilla.org will not make the website usable for normal users, because that's not its purpose. mozilla.org doesn't run around and talks with reporters, so normal users know about Mozilla.

Beonex also has other default prefs, even less integration with websites than Mozilla etc..

I'm trying to move users away from Netscape Comm. 4.x (LDAP) and MSIE/Outlook 2000.
