You are replying to this message
The problem is that you are very adept at replying to a single line of my post and then changing the subject.
I do not have any trouble grasping the concept of feature freezing a development project, but that is irrelevant; my post had nothing to do with feature freezing -- it was all about the defect curve red herring that you seem to like to throw about. My point was specifically about the fact that an increase in the number of bugs does not mean that the product is worse than it was before.
I chose to use the links toolbar as an example because none of the current links toolbar related bugs are critical, blockers, or crashers. Before the links toolbar was implemented, we had a signifigant hole in compliance with W3C specs represented as one bug. Now we have a functional links toolbar filling that hole, but we have several bugs filed about cleaning up and improving the implementation. The browser is better with an imperfect links toolbar than it was with no links toolbar despite the fact that it caused an increase in related bugs.
It is a pretty simple concept that I expressed very plainly in my previous post, so I'm not sure why you had a problem addressing the subject as it was. Perhaps now you can respond without pretending that I was talking about something different?
