    disagree -- most of the features in Fx exist in Opera, Safari and Konq.
    Sure they did, do, will. Based off the same premise, Netscape was the bomb when the internet opened up. Of course that's all there was...

    One good idea improved upon makes a better idea. Start with a good base (Opera, Safari, Konq) improve it, make it better and give it away as easy and efficiently as you can and you have a great idea (firefox).

    molendijk is right I think (in the testosterone based post ofcourse, because I did not understand one word of the above post )

    But I, as a user who do not want to keep programs which do the same thing on his computer, want my right to uninstall IE. I, as a web developer, also want IE to respect the standards not to make me add some unnecessary codes to my pages to make them work correctly in both IE&others.

    BUT, I think Opera is not that innocent about this suing thing

    Default why?

    I have a question, if MS is getting sued for putting IE on there OS,

    Then Why isnt Macintosh or Apple getting sued for putting there browser on there machines..?

    Macs are staring to get popular, and for Opera to press charges or whatever, its going to have a effect on all OS products which will be bad for the market,

    This is just stupid and this claim will be declined i am sure of it..

    I use IE cuase of its graphics and CSS but I only use opera and FF for regular stuff like email,
    also FF does not mean FireFox anymore I think they changed the name cuase FF means Final Fantasy ...

    Omdat heel weinig mensen mijn berichten zouden kunnen lezen als ze in het Nederlands gesteld zouden zijn.

    It means::
    Because very few people read could my bulletins if them be put in Dutch. John, gladly reported if I miss it here have a response to this.

    Probably simply because Macs aren't popular enough. No-one's losing any serious revenue from them. Also, I think Safari is open-source.
    also FF does not mean FireFox anymore
    It's always been officially abbreviated "Fx." People still use "FF" though.

    Unlikely.

    IE has s***ty (uberly fragmented and buggy) css support. It also has issues with png to say the least. (Probably other file types like tif as well.)

    IE 7 is actually pretty darn good with css, and very good with png. It even has a little trouble with IE proprietary filters, the sign of a 'good' browser in the opinion of many folks around here. My main problem with IE though is that it is a target. I'd rather surf with something that doesn't have a big red bullseye painted on it.

    Oh, I didn't realize that IE7 somewhat fixed its act with CSS and all. I have IE6, and there's no stuff like
    Code:
    div > span {display:table;}
    Still, it needs to clean up its JavaScript (ahem . . . JScript) support for me to even consider it a decent browser.

    But I'm probably not likely to upgrade soon because I still want to be able to test for v6.

    YES i do agree, it has change alot from the other versions, and I have never had problems with the css.

    I hate it is when I have to see when css works in both browsers and the coding. if opera and "Fx" want to become more popular, they should add as much features as IE has, this is why i dont use opera or fx
