Mozilla & Gecko clones "Firefox has just turned five, and it's doubtful anybody outside of Redmond begrudges Mozilla's celebrations. The open-source browser now accounts for 25% of the global market, according to figures from Net Applications, and has brought a radical rethink in what we expect from a browser. However, as Mozilla blows out the birthday cake candles, it might also be reflecting on the curse of getting what you wish for. Its success has forced rivals to raise their game, and the past two years have seen Microsoft, Apple and Opera close the features gap significantly."

I love greasemonkey too much to give up Firefox. Maybe I'll try the port to Safari sometime, but until it exists on a browser I ain't switching.

Well, if you like to customize your browser and the browsing experience, Greasemonkey is very good as it makes it relatively easy to write scripts to extent the browser functionality. Thousands of ready made scripts already available too, for all sorts of uses: http://userscripts.org/ I've personally used a few of handy scripts from there.
