Okay. Please clarify. Do you mean 'Sites not working with Mozilla' or 'Sites looking bad'?!? If you think the two are the same then there is obviously no point in having this argument. Sure some sites don't look great in Mozilla. Let's ignore the sites that don't look good in any browser (MozillaQuest, anyone? ;-)), and consider those that look good in IE5. Of those that use the 1% of markup that Mozilla and IE don't share, how many look bad in IE4? And IE6? And even IE3? In fact, you'll find (and I'm not going to qualify that, since it doesn't need it) that more sites designed for IE5 and especially IE6 I imagine in the future, work well in Mozilla than in IE 4. This is a simple fact about their shared standards. So yes, I don't see many people going 'OMG, this doesn't look perfect, I'm gonna dump AOL'. Probably as many as went 'OMG, that scrollbar in Mozilla is a pixel off, I can't stand it, back to IE'.
