Alright, this is it! Mozilla better beef up its PNG support. Looks like more and more people would be using PNG as opposed to GIF. When would the PNG binary transparency work on win32?

Now that Unisys is jacking up the price:

I think it is even more urgent for Moz to have full PNG support (including 8-bit alpha transparency). Anybody with me? While we are at that, I think that MNG should come next so that we would have totally no reason to use GIF (except for backward compatibility).
