Browser Technologies (Tony)

  • Issues

    • Concerned we're going to get many unfavorable reports due to multiple Fennecs on device. Also, once Beta is released, people are going to want to sneak preview it, then go back to XUL. From what I gather, the UX for that scenario is not pretty. Migration of profile XUL -> Native is not optional.
