What rock did you climb out from underneath that you have the notion that a 3 year old stale browser would have better web standards support than a fresh, constantly updated browser?


three words for you: BOX MODEL HACK if you don't understand look it up.


I have never used Avant, nor do I follow it, but to make a statement such as copying many of the features long offered by Avant you must be willing to provide some back up to that statement, because I am pretty sure it was not the first (thus implying its own copying).


Finally, even if you utilize one of these add-ons, you still deal with the bloat, the problems, the random crashes, and all the other good things IE represents. Mozilla/Firebird you start in a clean, isolated, and updated application.

    Box Model Hack, wow, powerfull who cares you got there.

    You obviously dont get the point. I have never even glanced at any of the CSS hacks for IE because I have no need for them. I never have had a problem getting what I want done, exactly how I want it done in IE - to the pixel.

    When overwhelming majority do it one way - thats the standard, not what is written by someone that does not even make a browser. I do not care if you can point out twelve thousand browsers that are perfectly standards compliant, and point out one that is not, IE. -- Cause I can show you 930 windows users that use IE for every 70 windows users that you show me that doesnt. - and since Windows owns a 95 percent + market share - I am very happy targeting 93 percent of the users that 95 percent of the world uses.

    You give me that, and you can have the rest for all I care.
