A few things that I like to point out. I got that 25% statistic from somebody else and what that person was saying at the time was that Mozilla can't render EXACTLY like IE. Mozilla always seems to have a few "issues" with it. That's what I was trying to get at. Please note that the below problems do not exist at all in IE.

<http://www.excite.com>, Look at the textboxes under My stocks and My horoscope. The upper and left side borders are black and not gray like in IE. It makes it look like they're overlapping or something. Also the text box for the search bar is way too small. The last thing that is rendered wrong is that there are no border around each news section of the page.

<http://my.netscape.com/> Log in and you can't drag and drop the news boxes like you can in IE. Damn, ain't that a shame? The text boxes are black in the same areas as well. Looks really ugly. :(

<http://www.shacknews.com/> Minor layout issues. The sidebar template is being overlapped for some dumb reason. I actually tried to save this page and edit out all the unneeded crap to try and see if I can fix the problem. I can't! The Mozilla editor won't display it correctly and won't save the images and reload it correctly. I can't even do a "Edit Page" thing anymore. Keeps telling not to save the file first. So, how the hell do you fix this one and how do you test it to see if it will work correctly? You can't, and I keep waiting for someone to fix whatever bug is causing it. You can not also use Flat mode or Dthread correctly like you can in IE. If you click on one of the posts, that post gets shown on top of the thread without refreshing the web page. IE DOM needs to be included since too much work was done to get it right the first time around. Go ask Steve about that but don't bug him to fix it! He's heard enough of that crap and is currently trying to get other features done at this time (and sell a few nifty T-shirts as well). Also, a few little gray color areas are missing here <http://adserver.ugo.com/h…hugashack&size=468x60> (also a line spacing issue) and here <http://adserver.ugo.com/h…hugashack&size=468x60>.

<http://www.aint-it-cool-news.com/> The underline bar below the text is too big compared to IE. Looks worse on the sidebar. :(

<http://gallery.bearchive.com/ugallery/> A real poor example of a site with textbox spacing issues. Do NOT click on the link if your under 18. :)

<http://www.pricewatch.com/> When clicking on any of the links in the middle, it won't show a pop up menu like in IE. Instead it'll list the items on a different page.

<http://www.csuohio.edu/index-in-revision.html> Go bug them about it if you like. :)

Even if these problems are fixed, I'd still wait for the Netcaptor <http://www.netcaptor.com> version of this thing to come out. I open up a LOT of links per day so it's become a necessity for me to use while surfing the net. Maybe K-Galleon will do it instead. :)

As for the IE favorites thing, after Mozilla .9 came out Ben changed the fix date to Mozilla .92. It used to be set on future. Ben felt that he would get around to it by then. Upon reading his weekly updates, it doesn't sound like he'll get to it soon. :( So with .92 work starting soon, Chen decides to SWITCH it back to future! It's like have your love one make you a promise and then break it soon afterwards. :( I want to also mention one other thing about this bug. It is REALLY close to be fixed. Not properly but enough just to get rid of the damn folder. The backend is done by Ben and the front end sorta exits. The only way you can delete the folder nowadays is to select the folder and press the menu button on the menu bar. All we need now is a twisty to tie the two things together and say "When this folder is deleted, IT $@$%#$% STAYS DELETED!!!!!!!!". :)
