Browserwar entering the next phase? Internet Explorer 7 versus Firefox 2

And so at last the beast fell and the unbelievers rejoiced. But all was not lost, for from the ash rose a great bird. The bird gazed down upon the unbelievers and cast fire and thunder upon them.

I can see some kind of competition element that might be there, but apparently this is not my kind of game.
