While perhaps pulling a bit OT, the thing I love about firefox in OSX is if you click on a link and hold, you get the context menu after a second or so. I\'m addicted to \'open in new tab\' so this feature is awesome. Safari, on the other hand, does not provide this option, so perhaps it\'s not what they want to do with OSX, but for me, it\'s neccessary when I\'m on my \'one button\' ibook!
