Actually Joshua, I agree and I have Firefox, Mozilla, Camino, Firebird 
and Netscape 7 all installed. To clarify, I was making a general 
comparison between the ubiquitous IE/PC and the most common Mac OSX 
browsers: IE5 and Safari. The Mozilla browsers are excellent and I am 
more delighted with them with every solid release. Every time I have 
the ear of a Windows user I urge them to download Mozilla or Firefox 
and join the modern age. (of course I also usually put in a plug for 
the Mac and Safari...but that is my little bias)

I was remiss not mentioning the Moz products. I guess the truth is that 
the latest releases of any Mozilla (on any platform) and Apple's Safari 
kick IE/PC's ( any flavor ) butt. In addition, while I am partial to 
Safari (my bias again) the edge goes to Mozilla.
