If developers are afraid to break things, It becomes difficult to make *fundamental* improvements in the code so I say "break it!". That is what us testers are for. And if releases are not better and they don't come out every six months- big deal. Another idea is to start a 2.0 developement branch in which Big changes are made and state that 2.0 will take a year or so to come out. Have 1.X nightlies and 2pre nightlies. Shift most development away from 1.X (it really is a good browser and should really be in "maintenance mode") and start plugging away at REAL new code!
