My opinion on the whole thing is that netscape should just keep trying as hard as it can to get a nce pretty browser out as fast as possible.

It doesn't matter if there are no outside developers. What makes OSS superior is the fact that people can see/verify what they are running.

I think its sort of like the linux thing - linus tried to get as many usable kernels out as he could in as short a time as possible. Its what gets people interestd and keeps them interested.

So I would think if basic functionality is in, to work on the UI and the exterior and work on optimizing and pruning later.
