Something that hasn't been mentioned, but I think is *very* important, is security. If you need one compelling reason to use anything-but-IE on Windows, it's not that IE is produced by Microsoft, it's that IE effectively gives anyone on the internet complete access to your computer. Moz 1.0 should have NO known security holes (fairly obviously), and should be sure to continue to warn people when they're about to do stuff (installing things) that could compromise security.

Probably this hasn't been mentioned because everyone takes it for granted that Moz is secure, but if we're driving towards 1.0 we mustn't forget the importance of this, and mustn't compromise it.
