No. 1 criterion - whatever results in mozilla being widely adopted in the long run. Does this mean pleasing the users or developers for 1.0? My own guess is the users.

As a user my top priorities in this order are: 1) speed 2) stability 3) polish 4) lower memory footprint - I just checked my memory and moz is using 56K!!! (i commonly browse with many windows as i have a slow connection)

And finally - NO more features - get the browser right first. Even though i use composer all the time (and it is terrible for editing) I would much prefer to have a top class browser first.

The thing is everybody uses the browser whereas most people only use a subset of the the other features.
