No alpha channel in PNG or position: fixed means nothing for the end user. It means a lot for web site developers that would want to use those features but can't. For the end user, all that matters is a fast and painless web surfing experience where all sites just simply work. IE gives you that now, Mozilla doesn't - yet. *YET* is important. One day, hopefully soon, it will. Right now, it doesn't and saying that Mozilla is on par / has surpassed IE is just not true. On a piece of paper where you count percentages of supported CSS3, yeah, maybe Mozilla is ahead. In the real world where UI responsivenes, speed and general polish is more important, Mozilla doesn't cut it - yet.
This is why I use IE 5.5 as my primary browser but follow the Mozilla project closely. I'm hoping to one day have an open source browser that is world class. Unfortunately Mozilla is not world class yet - no matter how hard you want it to be and how much you try to "shutup" (a direct quote) people who think different than you.
