"'A feature which I thought was going to be integrated in Internet Explorer 6 was a download manager. Download managers allow you to manipulate and take control of your downloaded files. Mozilla Firefox's download manager contains just the essentials to allow you to control your downloads. You can pause your download and continue it a later time, something which is not possible with IE's download manager. Apart from sporting a nice look, the download manager stores the information such as size and location of your downloaded file. When the download is complete, a small notification is displayed in the lower right side of the screen.'"

1. The concept is great: offer miminum requirements and fulfill additional needs with extensions. 2. Let the user define minimum typeface size, very useful with high resolution. 3. Development is in progress, more than just security fixes. 4. Most settings definable in user.js script, which makes installations easier.

I'm sure that I have more reasons. :)
