"...Plans have changed since May. Four Mozilla Milestone releases have been interposed between the current 0.9.3 release and the Mozilla 1.0 final release. In effect, that sets back the expected release of the Mozilla 1.0 browser-suite to 2002.

...Sadly, the Mozilla Organization does not seem to grasp just how far behind schedule is the Mozilla Project and just how buggy is the Mozilla browser-suite. Or, perhaps it does not grasp the importance of quality workmanship and producing software products that are not full of bugs. Neither of those landscapes is a particularly pretty sight.

It's past time for the Mozilla Organization to show some leadership and courage in stewarding the Mozilla Project. The Mozilla Organization should set some definite, realistic, schedule and timeline goals for finalizing Mozilla 1.0 - and then be prepared to take and accept the heat if those goals are not met. Moreover, it should make those goals clear and public - no more of the evasive, uncertain, and wishy-washy "when it's ready" crap."
