Also, Dan Parent from OEone noticed that typing chrome://messenger/content/messenger.xul in a tab loads mailnews into the tab! Same with Chatzilla (chrome://chatzilla/content/chatzilla.xul )."

I'm interested in seeing Mozilla stabilize partly out of ingrained concerns about software projects drummed into my head over the last twenty years, partly because you all seem to need the advice -- since you have lead engineers adding destabilizing features during periods where only bug fixes should be allowed, and project managers defending them instead of scolding them -- and partly because if Netscape 6.x and other Mozilla derivatives ever do become significant in terms of market share, it's in my best interest as a developer that they be as stable as possible.

In some respects it might make more sense for me to cynically attempt to destabilize the project so as to mitigate the risk posed by a new web browser, as you suggest, but I'm not that evil.
