I believe this has something to do with the people who write pages. NS 4 because of it's quirky support for CSS forced a lot of double writing or restricted the level of CSS one could use. Then comes Mozilla and brings out a browser that not only surpases IE in CSS support but has the nerve to not support the work arounds that were used to have crossbrowser support. Thus people who try to write cross browser pages had to clean up their script and comply to W3C standards. This I think is why we hear so much bad mouthing about Mozilla. It is a browser that one can't feed garbage to it. One has to right correct script. I've been using Mozilla since about the M 4-5, back in the days of no mail unless you edited the profile.js yourself. Since about M 13-14 it has become my daily browser, mail and newsgroup program. Why do people bad mouth it, well it does what the others don't it sets standards.
