Opera did, and then their developer who invented that
migrated to the FF project. FF had it I think one year
before IE.

However, think back to 1997-1999: IE implemented most
of the newer CSS model, forms function, object
embedding before Netscape (ancestor of Firefox,
derived from Mozilla source tree) could get around to
it. This is what I'm thinking of, more than (dubious)
interface enhancements.
