Please put me in charge of Mozilla Corp so that I can [checks notes] kill Mozilla Corp, divert all the dead-end work on Gecko into an engine that's going to be here in 2 years so we can all take on Apple together.

The failings of Safari + WebKit to provide a good web experience are lessened when Firefox is still out there being used by 18 people with high tolerance for garbage experiences.

"Safari isn't THAT bad, I mean look at Firefox..."

In the absence of legislation to force Apple to make a competitive browser, making it obvious how terrible the one they allow you to use is the ONLY answer.

They're not going to allow engine choice, so let's make them so embarrassed by theirs they have to match the other one.
