1. As you know, Mozilla (Application Suite) is a complete suite 
consisting of a browser, a mail/news client, a chat client, etc. 
Firebird on the otherhand, is a feature-rich standalone browser that is 
currently in the beta stages of development.

2. The plan is to develop Mozilla Firebird (browser) and Thunderbird 
(mail) seperately and then replace the current Mozilla browser/mail 
programs with these newer, leaner versions. Not sure about the rest of 
the suite though.
