Well I wouldn't be as extreme as that, but the amount of feature slip and release date slip that goes on in FireFox is phonomenial.

I don't think a release has ever been within 1 month of the release date. Not only that, the project rebrands itself so many times they basically start from scratch with the roadmap.

0.9 was originally scheduled for March/April, now Late may and it's going to slip into Early june.

While I love the project, I don't think they should even bother with roadmaps if they don't stick anywhere close to them.

One final thing: why the hell is work still going on in SeaMonkey? I doubt that is used very much anymore and with it being EOLed soon, there is a stupid amount of work that will more or less be wasted.
