I belive that the only possible future for mozilla is to get separated into pieces... Let's call this branch 2.0 (or whatever). Once basic separation is done.. NO NEW FEATURES must be added until all visible bugs are fixed. If it takes a year... so let it be, if takes more - also no problem. Bug fixes and speed improvements must be two main goals for mozilla-navigator... Mail, Calendar developers, etc may improve their parts the way they think is appropriate, but a separate Navigator which is FAST and STABLE is really needed. All nice icons, etc for sure make it pleasure to use the browser, but when other stuff is broken this should not be a priority, imho... at least for now. Mozilla navigator should be merged into Phoenix, but with full featureset we have right now. It is a shame that 70% of CPU are used for a few seconds just to display a bunch of bookmarks, that it takes to so long to load a browser from scratch, that memory footprint is getting bigger and bigger, that after a day or so being running mozilla must be restarted like I had to restart Win98/95 many years ago because otherwise it is as slow as turtle. We need a mode when Mail can be opened in a separate process, it dies too often on me and all my open pages die with it :(
