... and I am wondering whether xdvizilla is useful at all for anything
these days, given that Mozilla does no longer exist, and its successors
have much evolved. 

Does anyone know 

- whether it is still needed?

- or whether there are still people using it out of habit?

- or whether there's any other reason to not just drop it?
