Let's take for a example a few sites out there in existence now:
1. ABCNews.com 2. ZDNet 3. CNet 4. SoftSeek 5. CombatSim.com 6. Yahoo! 7. Altavista
Just a small sample off of the top of my head to name a few.
I'm not a 'professional web developer' like everyone else here seems to be but I am aware of the headache in creating cross browser sites and have made quite a few of them myself.
Now... for the above sample list of sites that I mentioned. Do you honestly think that they are going to start developing their sites while strictly adhering to the W3C?
HELL NO!!! Not unless the *vast* majority of users out there are using such a capable browser. This is a fact... maybe hard for some to accept... but it is true.
To make matters worse, this recent release of NS6 has *turned off* a rather large segment of committed NS4.X users who's intention had been to migrate to the the new version of Netscape.
One does not have to be a genius to figure this out....
