    I heard that it was fully standards compliant like Opera.

    "Oops?"

    No browser is "fully standards compliant" because there are lots of different standards and no browser implements them all, or perfectly, and most of them have proprietary features as well. It passes the ACID2 test, if that's what you mean.

    Yup.
    "Oops?"
    //Corrects myself.
    Sorry, it's not a commonly used word (There're) I usually use "There are"

    Most people say "there's," which is obviously incorrect for a plural.

    Hmm... And even my English teacher missed it. Are you sure? It's widely used. Even in movies.

    "There's" is a contraction of "there is." "There is two cats" is perhaps more obviously wrong to you than "there's two cats." The correct form of the verb is "are," as in "there are two cats;" I usually contract this to "there're two cats." I don't know if the contraction is standard or not, but it's logical and grammatically correct (conforming to the grammatical rules) even if such a contraction isn't widely used or "officially" recognised, so I use it, at least informally. I avoid contractions altogether in formal speech.
    It's widely used.
    There's nothing wrong with "there's," where appropriate. It is, however, very definitely singular, and shouldn't be used with plurals.
    Even in movies.
    And Hollywood sets such a great standard of English

    God damn, you English people sure know your English

    For plurals it's "theres" right?

    LOL.

    No, it's "there are." "There is one cat;" "there are two cats." "There's one cat;" "there're two cats."
