Sendu: While I broadly agree with your statements, and that Peter seems to have largely misinterpreted them (certianly from where I'm sitting), a fully style-guide compliant RISC OS Firefox port wouldn't be Firefox: It'd be some RISC OS program that happened to use Gecko for rendering. Which is quite a different matter. That might be want people want instead of a Firefox, it might not. It depends how much value users put on being able to use Firefox extensions and such, and how much effort for a developer it would be to get XUL/GTK/All the other bits working flawlessly verses a native GUI.
