I have to commend Mozilla for doing great things in terms of catalyzing competition in the browser market but honestly, compared to some of the other browsers for OS X, it just doesn't add up for me. It's slower in terms of JS performance and, compared to Opera, Safari and Chrome, is the most "out of place" aesthetically. Sure, there is the large extension ecosystem but I'm not a big extension guy and the ones that I do use are available for other browsers (primarily a flash blocker).

You and me both. I'm primarily an Opera and Chromium user but I have Firefox, Safari, Chrome, Chromium, Opera 10.5 and 10.6 on my machine.
