There's always a strong temptation for the "techies" to want every possible feature. That needs to be resisted. The typical user isn't going to care whether Mozilla has complete CSS2 or HTML4 support. You _do_ intend to make another release after 1.0, don't you? Some of this could wait.

User interface polish is VERY important for the end user, and something that most techies tend to ignore. They shouldn't if they want to build something that people will actually want to use.

My primary disagreement with macpeep is that there needs to be a continued attention to stability, that's also an issue that can be pretty visible to a lot of end users. As has been noted elsewhere that's something where perfection is probably impossible, but it's worth making a serious effort to make continued improvements in that area.
