This is not a client requirement, it's just something that lots of
power admins are probably going to use. As we noted yesterday, visits
to Drupal.org - and by extension, drupal admins - are a plurality
Mozilla based browsers.  Given those two points, Firefox' small
overall market share seems unimportant.

Browser independent, yes, but would this Drupal admin client also be
able to run inside of Firefox?  I think most people would prefer
installing an extension over installing a whole new application.
