Even if Mozilla is of sufficient quality for use by the general public, marketing a product (other than by word-of-mouth) costs money, both for market studies and for advertisements. Mozilla is a volunteer organization, and doesn't have the cash. Nor, I suspect, do we have many people with much real marketing experience.

The most effective 'marketing' we can do is to get in contact with the people at the companies with the most to gain from using Mozilla's technology, and get them to use it. Then /they/ can fund marketing efforts for their own products, and Mozilla benefits from their success, albeit indirectly.
