Firefox is not intgrated to the OS, because it doesn't have an OS.
Its just a trimmed Mozilla for windows..
However Mozilla in Linux is integrated at some level...so they are just the

No... it's not the same as IE. Not at all.
What you're referring to is Mozilla's integration with Nautilus/GNOME.
However, there are many people who don't run Nautilus/GNOME on their
systems. Even then, you're talking about Mozilla being a dependancy for
an application suite (Nautilus) as opposed to a base-level operating
system component. In the situations where it is a dependancy, the
intent is to provide a presentation engine, not a runtime engine like it
is in IE.
So, no - it's not the same thing as IE - not the same thing at all.
It's not even the same in a rudimentary, high-level sense, and from a
low-level API sense it's not even the same genus as IE, much less the
Full-Disclosure - We believe in it.
