... of course. But why shouldn't someone - who likes Mozilla - say, that it will kick IE's ass. You will see those comments on any larger project page. Those people are enthusiastic, they like what they see and they express their opinions. So, I wouldn't care if you would say "well, personally I don't think Mozilla will kick IE's ass soon, it has too many bugs, [...]". The problem is, that you CARE what others say. Someone says "Mozilla kicks IE's ass!" and you say something like "Bullshit, Mozilla isn't kicking IE's ass, you are stupid!". Do you see the difference? Different people, different opinions. You should accept, that some people REALLY like Mozilla and they REALLY think, that it is kicking IE's ass. Maybe they are wrong. Maybe you are wrong? Who knows. Feel free to express your opinions. Feel free to argue with others why Mozilla isn't there for you yet and what needs to be improved. But don't call others opinions "wrong". I would agree, if the developers would say "Well, Mozilla is already the best browser out there, let's stop development on it". But it's just a fan who wants to say "hey, you rock, your product rocks, I love it". There is really no need to argue about taste.
