On the UserLinux whitepapers, he mentions his plans to use Mozilla, but oddly decides to use the suite over Firefox because he doesn't think Firefox will be 'attaining maturity in time for us.' The site contains a Browser Matrix to compare the different browsers, but it doesn't seem to be complete."

True, but it is very useable, and the FireFox roadmap says it will reach 1.0 by June. It struck me as odd to start a whole new distribution, a project that may go on for years, and to use a product that may not be upgraded much anymore (the frontend of it anyway).
