Mozilla is soooo 2002. Real developers use FireFox.

I AM a real developer and I don't use it... 'cause...

...I don't do Betas

But as soon as version 1.0 (final) is out, bye bye Mozilla.

BTW: So 2002?! (He, he...)

My mail client at home is Netscape 4.8

What the heck? POP3 hasn't changed much since, right? And "thank god"
I don't depend on email for a living (outside of the office, that is!)

I don't get that much and it's just fine.

I started using the latest FireFox for the past 2 days. So far, I found 2 problems.

1. It doesn't show my router configuration page when I type "http:/192....". Comes with a blank page.
2. It doesn't render some of the pages properly. Since most of the websites target IE browser, this will be a problem for the Firefox users.

I am not sure how long I will stick with FireFox. I like the sbrowser though

Sankar (To be read with the sense-of-humor switch in the VERY MUCH 'ON' POSITION!)

I think that the reason FireFox (or Mozilla 1.7) don't (seemingly) render pages "appropriately" is because the authors of those pages behaved like HTML whores and they sold out to the non-standard (i.e. non w3c) display rules of I.E.

Sorry! I don't mean to insult real female sexual whores by comparing them to Micro$oft; I think higher of them than of the company.

Finally, no whores were harmed in the production of this post!

HA HA HA HA HA!!!
