I agree that you have to put a limit on how much you meddle with the end-user, but how do the developers stop themselves from only listening to the opinions of other developers instead of actually hearing what the user wants?

Another question: tries to make the browser suite better, okay, but better for who? If it's for everyone, you need to get the opinion from everyone. Why isn't there an opt-in list of users who get sent emails pointing to themes to try accompanied by questionnaires to answer regarding those themes (fully automated ofcourse), so all those "shall we go with A or with B?" UI questions finally get a conclusive answer?

The thing I would however like to do first however is to realise that they ARE making the end-product, whether they like it or not. Look at netscape, look at beonex. Are those radically different from mozilla? No, not at all. has the responsability for making a good end-user product, because, frankly, nobody else is.
