Oh yeah, Mozilla has taken such a long time now, about a year when they decided to make that drastic change from the classic Netscape code over to one based around Gecko/NGLayout. But just thinking about it, Mozilla is truely unique since the code is so portable from one platform to another. How many programs do you know that's so flexible? This is a strict coding following very specific standards, not random coding just to get the job done like what we see in most programs. It's something that's rarely done before, so it's a challenge for Mozilla to embark on this, this a longer development schedule.
I have no real proof on this BTW, just logical guesses and it would be nice anyone can point out whether or not I'm wrong.
