The Zope Corporation was in Boston with us, so there were two FOSS CMS
there. Also I know there were some commercial ones, but I don't pay
much attention to them anymore for some reason ;-)

Don't forget Plone. Thanks to their environment, they can do stuff
that the rest of us still cannot. But the gap is closing fast ;-)

I am an exclusive Firefox user, on both Windows and Linux, and we also
have developers that work on the Mac platform dedicated. I'd love to
hear your exact problems, in a way that I know I can reproduce them,
as I guarantee that they will get fixed by the next release.

Really, honestly, if you can prove there is a compatibility issue, and
give us instructions on how to reproduce, we will fix it.
