There are lots of good standards-compliant browsers out there though,
free and otherwise - personally I wouldn't want to see the wine project
advocating one specific browser over all the others (not that I see any
need for the project to recommend any kind of browser anyway!). 

A big part of the OSS movement is freedom of choice for the user based
on their own needs; saying "you should be using this particular piece of
software" makes you no better than the big players IMHO. (personally I
find the whole "get firefox" marketing campaign slightly distasteful for
that very reason)

My 2 cents anyway...
