With recent events and those stretching back years I want to know the answer to this question.

Please no discussion, only votes.

Helps to clarify what the mission is first to forestall any assumptions. The bitchfest has already started.

It's literally stated on the website.

I'll condense it down and clarify though:
The mission is to create a browser and general-use platform that strives to be useful in this day and age but that does not sacrifice too much of the past to get there.
That usefulness includes:
  • Keeping a balance in the provided feature set.
  • Avoiding gadgeteering and service reliance.
  • Building on the versatility of XUL.

Because of the hostile audience that's no doubt following this thread, better to quote or link to it for the record. Roadmap page is a good start.

Well thus far this pretty much matches the general trend and my assessments for the past several years. Do wish we had a slightly larger sampling but I would guess the thousands that don't come here generally are happy enough as well.

I've still got the greatest enthusiasm and confidence in the mission.
