I'm glad you're here, macpeep. You actually give good counter-points, and even though people see you as negative, I don't think you are. But I do think it's interesting that my Win98 box, approximately 5 years old, installs Mozilla every day without a hitch. Maybe a bug should be filled to attempt to bring Mozilla to an equivelent state on various platforms.

When you say "It doesn't bring my computer down like people like to comment," in reference to IE, Win2000 is much more stable than Win98, where Internet Explorer crashes can take down the whole system.

You're right about History, but I don't use it much so I wasn't aware of this reversal of functionality.

My claim to the most complete browser has to do with the total features, not that it was the most polished. Perhaps with people like you to continue to remind us where we need to be, and with people like the others here, who have the drive to get us there, Mozilla will gain the respect and the users it deserves.
