I fear this is just an attempt to have the last word.

Ah great, we're now into personal insults, how predictable.  Throwing
those around with phrases like "world view" won't fix Firefox issues,
nor will it gloss over the very serious problems that RISC OS has.  If
you're going to reply, reply to some of the points I made, instead of
falling to the lowest common denominator of personal insults.

It's only good news if you ignore everything which I said about the
faults with it, and the approach.   In the long run, it'll make things
worse, and probably already has.

Meanwhile, I have many many years of experience with software
development, and have been right again and again when looking at these
kinds of issues. It's great that the armchair experts such as yourself
dismiss this out of hand.

If you'd like to take over Firefox support, then that can be arranged,
and I can go away for a while, and do something far more productive.
After all, you have experts such as Paul Vigay to guide you, you don't
need me and my "world view".   I look forward to you releasing the next
