You are replying to this message

"it's sad to have to think that we pay dearly for perfection"

What exactly are "we" paying here? And where does it say anything about perfection?

How is this time like and eternity and what's it costing you to wait? Are you trying to ship a product based on Mozilla? Are you waiting for some API to stabilize so you can finish a time sensitive project you're working on? Did you invest money or development time with the expectation of some earlier ship date? Or are you just someone who likes to complain about how the workd isn't catering to your wants quite well enough.

Your sarcasm ow whatever it is sure doesn't motivate me to make 1.0 happen sooner... Actually, I'd like to know what this post was supposed to accomplish? What was it that you hoped would be gained with these comments? Are you ill-informed? Are you trying to mislead or confuse others? Are you just rude?

There are a lot of people working very hard on this project because it is important to them and your comments serve no useful purpose to the people actually doing something or those like yourself just quarterbacking from the sidelines. If you feel entitled to something here then you're just plain wrong. You want to see Mozilla 1.0 sooner (I'm still not sure why this is important to you) then step up and do something to make that happen. Insulting the people who are building a better browser for you is inconsiderate, unhelpful and just not cool.
