    The common perception is that OS X has more market share than Linux. Is it true? Maybe, but the perception is there, so it gets mentioned first in press releases.

    As soon as they implement some kind of privacy framework that allows blocking access to user defined urls I'll switch over. Till that time comes it's still Firefox for me

    It takes so long to release the final Linux version. It seems to be lighter then Firefox (on Linux), but it its support is very weak.

    Speaking for desktops ofcourse, I guess in US+Canada it is. But in Europe and Asia I'm not so sure.

    I'm happy with Chromium. My distro releases binaries built from snapshots so often that it takes me less time to build it from svn than to re-download it over and over.
