Hhahaha, that was ridiculous. Thanks for the laugh man. Of COURSE 0.8.1 doesn't kick IE6's ass! It doesn't even kick IE4's ass, or even Netscape Communicator 4.0's ass. When Mozilla reaches 1.0 and all the thousand small bugs that makes it look and feel like a toy are fixed, then maybe it will be on par with IE5.5 or IE6. At 0.8.1, you've got to be dreaming or then you're SERIOUSLY kidding yourself. Or maybe you have never used IE5.5? It's stable, VERY fast but most of all, which Mozilla is not, it's POLISHED. What I mean is that buttons aren't mis-aligned, SSL isn't 50 times slower than normal HTTP, bookmarks actually work, there aren't extra emtpy statusbars in address books that someone just forgot there, there aren't 10 different kinds of tree widgets that all look and work differently etc. Wake up man! Mozilla has potential and may some day be a good browser. Right now, it's *NOT* and most *DEFINITELY* is not kicking IE6's ass!
