"The whole mozilla 1.0 branch is getting rediculous. Millions of development money go into creating 1.1, 1.2, 1.3, .. and all Netscape uses is Mozilla 1.0 (and most users opt for Mozilla because of that)."

Do you really think Netscape would fund development work on the trunk if they didn't plan to use it some day? When Netscape 7.0 was released, the 1.0 branch was still new and no post-1.0 non-alpha/beta releases were available for Netscape to work from (I know Mozilla 1.1 was released a few days before Netscape 7.0 but that was far too close for Netscape to base their 7.0 release on 1.1). Since then we've had two interim upgrades: 7.01 (the whoops-we-really-should-have-included-the-popup-blocker release) and 7.02 (a stability/security update). Netscape's next feature release, Buffy, will be trunk-based.
