Browser rivals playing catch-up?

I don't think so.
Like great minds thinking alike, the Internet's two main competing browsers unveiled new improved versions just days apart last week.
Please, give me a break.
Both browsers now provide built-in search windows, so that one does not have to open a new Google, Yahoo or MSN page to search on a keyword.
Incorrect again. Firefox has had the Google search bar from, like, the pre-1.0 days.

I also don't think the emphasis on anti-phishing protection features is really warranted. Is this probably because Microsoft is touting this feature as a competition-beater?
