I just checked the statistics for my own site and I was pleased to see that mozilla + opera account for nearly 35% now. That is a large change and must be something of the last few months. I don't check my statistics that often. It used to be something less than 5%. Obviously I'm in an environment (university) where people are more likely to pick up Mozilla so it is by no means representative for the whole community. However this does mean I will be a bit more aggressive in using stuff that doesn't work properly in IE. I saw asa using some pretty nifty rounded borders for instance and I most definately am fed up with being unable to use position: fixed, png alpha channel, etc.
