even if they use the same rendering engine, that's at least two new 
interfaces with certain expectations about how things will work 
inferred by those designs...

kinda like using IE and then using AOL's IE... similar, but different 
enough that it confuses my parents... they expect AOL-type things 
to continue to happen on all web pages, and then using just IE 
confuses them with so few creepy blinky things going on...

ugh... this may not affect web development in the aggregate, but i 
suspect a major impact on interface standards when these get a 
strong user base...

"but on my copy of MSN explorer, i can email right from the 
toolbar... at work, clicking the mail link does nothing..."
