> Better integration between the two needed?

Definetely! We need (as a minimum): 1. "Send Link" in FB should use TB (prolly handled by OS? If not, a pref!). Therefore, also: 2. Shared Addressbook 3. TB: middle-click opens in new tab (this is a biggie). 4. Digital Certificates (e.g., Thawte: )

OTHER NEEDED FIXES (not related to "integration"): 5. Ability to "Close All Tabs" by default (not an extension). Also, the context menu should be ordered like in Mozilla. 6. New Style of Selecting and Managing Sidebar Panels using a Single-Selection Dropdown List 7. Make the f9 key open the sidebar.

With integration, I thought they meant more of the rendering engine that they previously shared--and probably certain other parts of the former suite.

I believe one of the things they don't like with all the apps together is that a mailto: link in Navigator will always create a message in Mail/News, and a Web link in Mail/News will always open in Navigator--regardless on the OS defaults. I think that's actually one kind of "integration" they were actually trying to get rid of. I believe it's a good thing. But Mozilla FB and TB are going to be our defaults, anyway, aren't they? :-)
