I wonder if an "open-source" marketing group could work. Perhaps some members from each company utilizing the Gecko engine, with a pool of money for the marketing effort. Create a "Look for the Gecko Inside" campaign (yeah, I know I stole that from Intel). If the public is keenly aware of Gecko, it could make a real shift in browser usage. With the right effort, any non-Gecko browser (*cough* IE *cough*) could start seeming like an IDT x86 chip next to an Intel Pent-III.

I don't even know if an "open-source" marketing group could work. But it's an idea worth considering, I think.
