I understand this argument completely. It narrows down to "Mozilla is excusably slower because it does more, and it does it better.". The problem I see with arguments of this nature is that means Mozilla has to beat IE with marketing. It has to envangelize the world into writing pages that actually take advantage of Mozilla's "more and better" so as to differentiate itself from the latest offering of IE.

Call me a cynic, but I just don't see that happening. As far as I can tell Mozilla needs to beat IE with stability, and performance to regain market share. Of course AOL switching over to Mozilla would change everything...
