Mozilla's feature list, IMHO, is pretty much there. It just needs some tweaking, and I think this will always be the case.
The things to focus on now are performance and plugin support. I agree that 1.0 should mean that it is ready for prime-time, rather than the public beta release that defines many 1.0 releases. Mozilla needs to render its pages faster, and be more stable. Plugin support needs to be much more consistent (0.9.2 still crashes when I try to run Java applets on Linux). Otherwise, Mozilla has come a long way. To those of you who have been working long and hard on this, great work! You're not quite there yet, but you're close. This is a real opportunity to put IE in its place--just keep the faith.
