According to the roadmap, 1.4 is likely to be the last milestone of the traditional Mozilla suite and the 1.4 branch will replace the 1.0 branch as the stable development path. mozilla.org is also proposing changes to the module ownership model including a move towards stronger leadership and the removal of mandatory super-review in some cases.

If there are people who are overcharched by a couple of buttons or options, fine, give them something like the embedding-demo which consists only of the rendering area and an url bar. I want a tool that allows me to do my work flexible and efficiently. Mozilla is still lacking a couple of important features and Phoenix is lacking *a lot* of features and configuration options. I am all for making the UI better suited to all levels of users, but simply stripping of features is not the way to go. What is going on - are the Jenny Craigs of the world conspiring here?
