Now we got all the pieces of the puzzle: w3c standards (web designers want it), modular component architecture (windows programmers will love it), emphasis on internationalization support (you'll see Mozilla as the "official browser of X country because of this), one cross-platform FE (so that no OS including Linux has to feel left out), downloadable configurable chrome (fun for the masses :) ) and of course...open source. All we need now is more documentation and more stability and then we can expect an explosion of support for Mozilla. And please please please forget the nonsense of worrying about the schedule. You know IE4 came 4 months after NS4 and look what happened. Besides, we got Netscape 4.5 which should really take some of the pressure off the delay.
