Huh?  Most Mac users I know (except the diehard anti-Microsoft ones) use 
IE5 because it's one of the best browsers out there.  NN4 is about as 
crash-prone on the Mac as on the PC, except it generally takes out the 
whole machine.

Only if you base market penetration on new computer sales (like the 
industry does - which is wrong).  If you count installed base, Macintosh 
penetration is much higher (because people generally use Macs longer than 
they use PCs, although this is changing).  I have no numbers but it's 
closer to 10% than 5%.
