What I think needs the most focus are the rendering bugs. I agree with him that we should strive to be as compliant as possible with CSS1, HTML 4, DOM 0, DOM 1. I'd also like to see a bit more work on DOM 2, CSS 2, if possible. Why? Well Netscape signed all these deals to embed the browser on different pieces of hardware. So the embedding stuff needs the most focus. Plus, I have no intrest in using the UI for Mozilla. <http://www.netcaptor.com> is just too perfect for my needs. I want mozilla engine slapped on that baby and it's goodbye IE! I need control of my multiple browsers that are open. IE and mozilla just suck at this so badly. I d/l a few webpages and while thier d/l'ing, I'm reading one that gets finished first and then when one of the others is finished, it pop's up in front of the one I'm trying to read! Hello IE & Mozilla? Please stop doing that. I hate it. Netcaptor has the UI perfectly laid out and it rarely, if ever, crashes. :) However, I don't expect him to work on porting mozilla to his cool program until mozilla is stable, API freezed, and standards compliant as possible. Maybe next year? :)
