A couple of years ago I switched to a Mac, and unfortunately huge download sizes are a fact of life for Apple followers since they need to include both x86 code and PowerPC code (for universal apps). That being said, a lot more could be done to shrink apps down and I appreciate it when developers put the effort in. One of Firefox's aims when it launched was to be as small a download as possible - I think the 1.0 was a mere 4 megabytes. Firefox has swelled out a bit to 7 MB (Windows build) but it's still relatively compact when compared with programs like Quicktime and Adobe Reader.
