My take is that no matter how slick Firefox looks and despite all the publicity it gets, Internet users are finally realizing that Microsoft isn't the only software company to struggle with bugs, security problems, and compatibility issues. Firefox 1.5 will reportedly include an easier patching system, presumably to facilitate the continuous and necessary stream of fixes that Mozilla has been releasing of late.
