With FireFox it has become a slip counted in months, not weeks ;o) .

Having worked in environments with deadline slippage I would dare to say they are not all happy that this happens. At this point in the browser war game they are only competing against themselves from a development standpoint. They've got the best there is and there is no need to be too aggressive only to find everything can't be done in time. More reasonable milestones would help ensure they can deliver what is planned on time and with a high level of quality.

As Charles Barkley says, "I could be wrong, but I doubt it" :o) .
