My two cents:

Firefox, as others have pointed out, still seems slow and clunky to
me.  On the "free" as in free to change code front, the Mozilla folks
seem more transparent.  Google may release the source, but there is
always a nagging feeling that might change.  I've never tried to look
at the Windows source code, but is it that easy to get?  After all,
that is clearly the largest user base.
