...and the thing that maybe could be said even more explicitly is that whilst IE isn't looking like it's going to get many more features any time soon, there's nothing Moz developers like more than adding features (which is often as much a curse as an asset) - which means that come 1.0 and IE parity the future should only look glorious for Moz, which IMHO is fairly likely to leave IE in the dust by about 1.5 .

I suspect if you compare IE7 and Moz 2.0 you won't be so quick to deny there are reasons to use Moz rather than IE. And if IE is still a contender you can bet that 90% of the motivation will be Moz (and Opera, and Konq) - the reason that IE hasn't improved is that Microsoft hasn't needed it to - now they do.
