Erm. The argument that it doesn't have feature parity because MS adds extra non-standard stuff doesn't hold water. Feature parity for a browser is about what web functions it supports. We don't say that IE is far lagging mozilla in features because it doesn't support mozilla skins, or XUL, or Search plug-ins, etc. etc. I guess in not supporting P3P Mozilla could be considered to be lagging, though I'm not sure if that's actually a W3C recommendation yet. After all, Mozilla *does* support all the tags and attributes MSIE supports - the fact that it chooses to interpret ones that feature nowhere in the standards (largely by ignoring them) is just as valid an interpretation as IE rendering them in its own bizarre way.
Mozilla certainly can't hurt you in the way you imagine, at least not as much as Mozilla's failure would. The moment IE wipes out any competition, there goes your companies ability to create the best application on an even playing field.
