You are likely right; though it's obvious that you can still *fully* customize
it as you like (or, there are no browsers around which can satisfy you as
FireFox does, speaking about UI of course).

As far as I can tell, FireFox is incompatible with the kind of software
everybody here want. Though it's the only one which can fit everyone needs ATM.

I'll never going to use a web browser which I'm not able to install on
GNU/Linux and NetBSD (or any other unix-like OS) with the same ease. Also the
UI is very important for me, often more than efficiency. I can't use a browser
which don't allow me to have a customizable UI like Vim which, for istance on
X11 only the VIMperator extension of FireFox does. Further releases of Chrome
will likely (and hopefully) change my POV about.
