Mozilla will never win by playing "catch up".
Mozilla doesn't have to match IE. It has to beat it. To significantly eat into IE's installed base, it needs to do things IE not only doesn't do perfectly, but can't do at all.
You've had your interim "get it out there" release. That was NS6. Now is the change to get the rest of it _right_. MathML, XBL, Chrome. There will only be one Mozilla 1.0 - and unlike Microsoft, most people can't survive a bad first impression.
If Mozilla is good enough, then even if it doesn't come out for another 6 months, it will wipe the floor with IE. You've seen how peer to peer software like ICQ, AIM, Napster took off? Well with Jabber and Chatzilla, Mozilla can do the same.
