Joerg Beierle brought to our attention an interesting interview with Richard Stallman at LinuxWorld. There are a few comments about Mozilla about halfway into the article.

Adam, I have a real respect for you in what you've done with the ActiveX control, but you really don't have any clue what you're talking about w.r.t. RMS.

Lynx is in no way antiquated. It's actually /extremely/ fast, and, moreover, stable. There are no bombs. There is very, VERY little crashing. In fact, I think you'd be hard-pressed to find someone who has seen Lynx crash. I think I have once, when I triggered an exploit in order to learn a bit more about script kiddies. It's constantly improved, does support mouse (through GPM and xterm) and generally is a very great browser.

As for GNOME, it didn't take all that long to mature, actually. About the same time as Mozilla has since the switch-over to nglayout, I'd say.
