    because incremental refactoring is too boring

    it all started with rust

    Both debatable on the "in their right mind" front, but both good points

    Is someone at Samsung considering making a Servo-based browser?
    Samsung was involved in Servo and Rust for a long time IIRC, and also in Lets encrypt

    I would as long as this browser has the "Tree Style Tab" addon and is able to handle the modern web to some acceptable degree. Couldn't care less how much faster other browsers are. And I guess the general public also doesn't care much about speed as long as it is fine. I don't think that 95% of chrome users have ever tried firefox to compare speed.

    Firefox project is nice, but with extremely shitty management.

    Thunderbird is interesting, but quite bloated and slow compared to similar graphical email clients. It can't manage my 97 million emails inbox
    I thought that Thunderbird would have new air under its wings. But to date the ui is a huge mess with buttons and menu options scattered all over.

    And STILL no CardDAV support ... I still use it because not much better exists on Windows .

    Looks like they're continuing their long standing policy of actively trying to run the project into the ground by giving greater focus to things like making the technical terminology used less "problematic" rather than making sure that technology is any good. I can understand that it's much more fun to work on new moonshot features, but for those to work properly your fundamentals do need to be in order first. The Mozilla project has never had what I'd describe as good fundamentals and that goes back to the Netscape under AOL days.

    I'd very much like to be optimistic about the future of Firefox and the Mozilla foundation, but I have absolutely no faith in their current management.
