#18 If we're going to count open bugs...

...then we end up in MozillaQuest territory. And we don't want to go there.

The number of bugs reported is a sign of good testing, not poor stability. In any case, you counted the wrong figure: if you are considering stability, you should be searching only for crash bugs. Look for keyword 'crash' and select your OS plus 'all'; for Windows there are 388 right now, which is still a large number, but it's not thousands.

Mozilla rarely crashes for me, either (well, except when I'm running dubious nightly builds). I mean it crashes less than IE, and I'm not saying IE crashes often either, that's also very rare.

If you want real stability data you'd have to know the Talkback results. I have no idea what those look like.
