Windows users prefer S/MIME. I know I use it on my Windows machines
because it does not require me to install more applications. It works
seamlessly in Outlook, which is probably its biggest asset. Perhaps the
Mozilla folks, realizing that Microsoft users are probably its largest
base audience prefer to stick with what its main constituency want. Just
a guess and my own 2¢.
