So what? If IE is the better browser for you: what is your problem? Just use it. Some people like Mozilla more than IE. They use Mozilla. Mozilla is already doing great and even far better than I thought it would do, some month ago. I'm happy with it, others are too. Not everybody of course. But why do you want to tell everybody, that really they _don't_ like Mozilla? Your are wrong. they do. Maybe IE is better for you, but others may have other points they consider as "important" features. At the moment, Mozilla is not the best choice for everyone, no doubts. Why can't you just accept, that you are one of those, who don't like Mozilla. You can say IE is faster, you can say IE has less GUI bugs, but you can definetly NOT say, "IE is better than Mozilla". Ok? It's just your opinion and it's our's, that Mozilla is far more interesting, powerfull, complete than IE. Also it still has bugs and flaws it's perfectly usable. Especially if you doesn't use the Mozilla UI, as I said before. The render engine is already VERY complete. And best of all, it's quite open so not only Netscape or Microsoft does profit from it, but also the users. And if I now say "Mozilla ROCKS for me", I don't feel like getting told by you, that in fact IE rocks much more for me. It's not.
