Until mozilla profiles work correctly on Windows, I think its unlikely to make much of a dent in IE's market share. I use moz all the time under Linux, but myself and others I know have tried several times to get it to work on Windows without success. The second time it starts, it can't find the profile it created previously. I'm not sure if this is a roaming thing, but its unusable as it is, and damn annoying.
