What a dumb question: "Why did you decide to split the Mozilla kit - browser, mail client separate?"

The better question is "Why were the mail an dbrowser apps combined for so long when it was clearly stunting the improvement of both?"

Now that attention is separately focused on FireFox and Thunderbird, they have become very impressive pieces of software. You wonder how much better they'd be by now had it started out this way 6 years ago.
