My first 1 or 2 years at Mozilla I spent entirely working on
Spidermonkey. I was happy with it, and I even joked that I never
wanted to work on the browser proper because compile times were so
long compared the to JS shell.

But eventually I branched out and worked on other components, and I'm
glad I did because it's given me a much better perspective on things.
That's not to say that it's bad if we have people spending all their
time working on SpiderMonkey -- it's a hugely important component! But
Firefox, in its entirety, is the product that we ship to 100s of
millions of users.
