SubtleRebel, you wrote : "Why would OS X users be more interested in OmniWeb and IE than Mozilla?"

because OmniWeb and IE (somewhat) both have the Aqua look... while «Mozilla has a PC look». that's what Mac users i know have told me. I'm just reporting what they told me ! I know IE's not as good as Mozilla wrt standards and OmniWeb is lacking real Javascript (or rather ECMAscript) support but... you know, many computer users make their choice on UI design rather than functionality... and Mac users are even pickier about their UI. that's because they really *love* Aqua, i suppose (ok, it seems strange to be in love with computer graphics but that's reality...)

however, as a potential future OSX user, i hope, as much as you, that a native OSX/Aqua port will kick both IE and Omniweb's asses soon ;-)
