That's a ridiculous scenario. No CIO or corporation is going to roll out a browser that includes mail, chat, news, compose, etc.

When this whole thing gets to a 1.0 release, companies will finally be able to confidently roll out Moz-based browsers, whether to employees or companies. This focus on the browser is long overdue and incredibly refreshing.
