It _might_ not discourage some users, but in my experience end-users tend to be very intolerant of the least little cosmetic glitch. I don't think it would discourage very many "techie" users but, given the non-technical audience that we're talking about, I quite frankly think you're wrong on this point.

Obviously if Mozilla/Netscape can win back enough market share then more web sites will make an effort to be compatible with it. But this is sort of a chicken-and-egg proposition: you'll need a lot of those non-technical users in order to achieve that, and this kind of thing will scare them off before you ever _get_ that kind of market share.
