I think one of the most incisive comments I have heard about Mozilla and its siblings (or are they children) is that most web developers seem to be wishing for the death of competition to IE so that they can and only have to design for a single browser. There are popular sites that work better now with IE than the standards-compliant Mozilla, because they use proprietary features. Now, surveys show IE penetration at over 85% or thereabout, which means that there are insignificant numbers of Windows users of non-Microsoft browsers. Unless Windows gets competition, there'll be few real browser competition, and when "browser war" completely dies down, few people would care about non-IE browsers, and when that happens:

AOL will no longer support Mozilla.
