I agree totally that Mozilla needs to deliver a market improvement in order to be a qualified success. I also agree that some of the features of Mozilla are overkill to the normal surfer (ie. Composer). But I think you are completey missing the boat on the email component. My experience has always been that the surfing guru wants a slick browser (Opera) separate from their slick email program (Eudora). I.E. also works this way, but ever notice that IE's largest customer base combines them (AOL). The average internet user wants usability, not always the BEST product. AOL has grown into the largest ISP offerring a stripped down MSIE browser bundled with their email program to offer the "whole online experience". They recognize the correlation that customers want Word = typing, Excel = spreadsheet & AOL = online experience.
