"'A feature which I thought was going to be integrated in Internet Explorer 6 was a download manager. Download managers allow you to manipulate and take control of your downloaded files. Mozilla Firefox's download manager contains just the essentials to allow you to control your downloads. You can pause your download and continue it a later time, something which is not possible with IE's download manager. Apart from sporting a nice look, the download manager stores the information such as size and location of your downloaded file. When the download is complete, a small notification is displayed in the lower right side of the screen.'"

It is expected that FF 1.0 will contain a set of extensions bundled WITH the installer but that do not install by default. During the install, the user will be able to select as many (or as few extensions) as they want. I fully expect TTLO (Things They Left Out) or a very similar extension to be included in this set. It contains most of what is in the Moz Suite and will hopefully contain more by the time it is bundled with FF.
