Mozilla has a lot of advantages over IE, but that is a moot point to this thread.

Regardless of which is better, your implication that development of Mozilla is a lost cause is still totally absurd.

For sake of discussion, lets say that you are right that Mozilla 1.0 will have no advantages over IE. Does that mean that Mozilla 1.1 also will not have any advantages? How about Mozilla 2.0?

IE is not perfect; the potential for a better browser exists, but if no one bothers trying to build it then it will never happen.

I do not understand why people continue to try to discourage competition with IE. Without competing browser development, IE development will stagnate and the only new features that we will be likely to see will relate to generating additional rvenue for Microsoft.

The reason why Mozilla 1.0 should be released regardless of IE marketshare should be obvious: if you never release any new browsers then there will never be a better browser.
