"Recently several new projects have been added to mozdev for a total of 23. Some of the most recent projects that were added include mozmp and lizzard, media player projects similiar to Real Player and WinAmp. Also recently added is the Snippets project which acts as a central repository for code fragments that other projects might find useful, and the Sherlock project which collects different search engine sidebar enhancements in one place. If you haven't checked it out recently, come on over and see what we're working on."

....no.

Damn, most of the 'Mozilla as a platform' hype is pretty damn stupid, but this has to be the stupidest I've heard yet. No offense. :)

As for 'who needs java anymore' - even for applets (which are mostly useless anyway and certainly not the prime use of Java, although it doesn't seem you were considering that), I would say that the > 95% of users who don't use Mozilla might well be the answer to your question.

(And do NOT expect Mozilla to become a more significant browser in terms of user percentages until/unless AOL take up Mozilla, or some of the other web-devices catch on; even then, don't expect it to hit 50%...)
