The value of switching browsers

I'm a fairly hardcore Safari browser fan. (Safari is the khtml-based web browser from Apple). I'll avoid the details but I I recently started alternating between Safari and Firefox. I'm quite impressed. I had heard that Safari's Javascript implementation was "incomplete" but I'm amazed at how many features on various web sites have "suddenly appear" when using Firefox. (Obviously they didn't suddenly appear, they just weren't previously displayed because Safari couldn't process them.)

For example, I was quite amazed to discover that editing a blog entry in MovableType is almost completely different. There are buttons that turn this textarea I'm editing into a fairly interesting little text editor.

I wonder what I'll discover next. Please reply to this if you want to point me at your favorite discoveries.
