Yesterday, the tree was branched in preparation for the final release of Mozilla 1.3. Checkins to the 1.3 branch are being tightly controlled by drivers@mozilla.org. Meanwhile, the trunk has been reopened for 1.4 Alpha development. See the Roadmap for more details and tinderbox for the current status of the 1.3 branch and the trunk. A list of bugs blocking the 1.3 release is also available.

Does IE have a splash screen? No. And yes, there are "magic" ways to cut that down. For example, Phoenix starts about twice as fast as Mozilla. Reducing static footprint (a major focus area right now) will also help.

More to the point, as Mozilla gets faster average-speed hardware is getting faster. So I suspect that splash screen removal can actually happen for Mozilla within the next year.
