UPDATE! The list has now been featured on both Slashdot and CNET News.com.

"Prevents running of executables directly" isn't something Mozilla can do that IE can't. It's something (conveniently running executables) that you *can't* do in Mozilla but you *can* do in IE.

(Yes, I want this feature. Preventing you from running .exe files is awful UI design and doesn't significantly increase security. Having downloaded the file you're clearly going to run the bugger anyway.)

Other than that (and a few other things IE does actually have, plus some I'm doubtful about - is IE really available in fewer languages? I thought Windows was probably available in quite a lot of languages) it's a pretty decent list. I'd be interested to see what IE proponents can come up with in response, and how convincing their list is in relation.
