Today we use the release notes as standard homepage for all browsers,
instead of whatever is upstream default. Why do we do that, while
constantly repeating the mantra "upstream!, upstream!, upstream!"?

In my personal opinion, the release notes belong in "help" or something
like that (even a shortcut on the standard desktop would be more
intuitive) - not as the standard homepage in every browser.

This confuses people, and addmitedly, the release notes aren't that much
usefull to the users as the standard homepage - especially in firefox,
where the standard is:
which is simply a google search with some hints on using firefox etc.
