This bug is one prime example of how Mozilla has their priorities all out of order. 8-bit alpha channels would be a TREMENDOUS boon to developers and would dramatically improve the way websites are made. If you read through Bug #3013 you will see a big of ambivalence from certain Mozilla engineers as if they don't understand why this is important. Most of them, obviously, have never had to break a Photoshop file up into HTML. This is why I am getting more and more pissed off as I follow Mozilla's progress because so much attention is being paid to crap like XUL and Composer and meanwhile really important things like this bug or CSS2/DOM2 support are being cast to the wind. sad sad sad
