"I think the W3C is inventing new 'standards'. In the process, they are causing Mozilla to create a browser that will fail on Webpages that have nothing wrong with them."

Standards are there for a reason. If pages are rendering incorrectly in a standards-compliant browser, and the reason isn't bugs in the browser, then the pages have something wrong with them. End of story.

If you don't like the W3 standards, invent your own markup language, give it a new file extension, and code a viewer.. just like EVERY OTHER PERSON who has ever made a new document format in the history of computing. If you're the genius you think you are and the W3 is so terrible, then I hope your format finds all the success and glory it would be entitled to. Until then, do everyone a favor and shut the hell up.

What the hell are you, anyway? Some kind of troll? All I ever see you doing is referring to engineers as "flunkies" and acting like everyone is accountable to you for everything you perceive as wrong with the world (which is to say, nearly everything). Get a life already, dude.

By way of staying on topic.. it's about bloody time that I get to use the technologies I read about years ago. What am I looking for in Mozilla? The first browser that's actually modern for its time since Mosaic 1.
