Should [Mozilla] Thunderbird be listed as a separate choice, as it's unclear what is meant by Mozilla?

They're essentially the same thing. Mozilla's plan is to separate it's various components (Web, Email, etc) into separate applications. Mozilla web is Firebird, and email has is now Thunderbird. They use essentially identical code however.

Technically, I probably should have split Mozilla (old integrated browser/etc) from Firebird (new browser-only). However, they're all Mozilla products, and as can be seen so far, usage is quite low ...

You mean Firebird

Safari is great don't get me wrong... it's just that Firebird has more features in it and pages are viewed more correctly. Plus, Safari's slow bookmarks bother me as I use them all the time.

I give Apple until version 2.0 and maybe I'll start using it more.

Thunderbird is not Mozilla's web client, it is their email client. Instead, Firebird is their web client.

Personally, I use Safari, Omniweb and Firebird...

My order is as follows:

OmniWeb
Safari
Firebird
