Apparently No One At Apple Uses The Dock On The Side
I use the dock on the side (those pixels are cheap on a widescreen display). Not looking forward to the 10.5 version — “Like an M.C. Escher acid trip”.

Macworld: Review: Web browser roundup
"Someone give me 2500 words on the current state of Mac browsers". Lazy, ignorant review. Firefox is cool because it can control iTunes via some sort of extension. Camino is worst for RSS because it doesn't have a native reader. Etc.
