Macpeep has a point. Standards support is nice, same with new features, better performance and more stability.. but seeing the many small quirks in Mozilla's UI is not acceptable for a 1.0 release.
Get the UI sorted out, then the top crashers and finally performance. Mozilla 1.0 doesn't need any more features than it has now. Granted, it would be nice to see a few of the many nifty little features filed in bugzilla but when you see the UI shifting a few pixels under your mouse cursor.. it's not going to give a good impression.
So, UI polish is top priority, then top crash bugs, performance in relatively slow area's and finally documentation.
UI polish and documentation are a must for the 1.0 release. Crashes would become even less important (for the 1.0 release) if Total Recall could be included.
BTW, why _is_ it not included?
