There are a couple of issues with getting plug-ins. The plug-in doc project on MozDev is a great step in that direction, but it's far from easy for users to be manually copying DLL files from one directory to the next. Other than that, I'd say it's a fairly easy browser to get used to.

I'm so tempted to get into the whole bundling thing. I think it's wrong, but that's as far as I'll go now. It's worth noting that Mozilla is making gains over IE despite the continual shipment of new computers with IE pre-installed.
