It's currently at 85% now. Kinda funny that there are about twice as many people who have voted for the Mac version. And, unfortunately, as a Mac user by default at the moment, I have to agree... :(

IE 5 for the Mac just comes across as so much *smoother* in general. At least on this machine (G4/450MHz/192MB/OS 9). There are far too many outstanding interface issues right now on the Mac. It's come a long way in a short time on the Mac, yes, but it's still not quite my default browser. (Unlike on other platforms...)

Before I get flamed for not posting Bugzilla links, I should note that Cmd-N (new window) simply brings up a blank window without chrome even. I recall seeing this as a bug, but I don't know right now.

I know the Linux version has to be better than the Mac version. Where are the numbers to show it? 20-odd votes making up 85% approval isn't much. Sorry. At least Mac users are voting. Even if the numbers aren't encouraging.
