"It also happens in 6.1. It's bearable."

Umm.. No.. really.. It's not. Not for me and not for a LOT of users. It's DEFINITELY a major issue. And that attitude is also a pretty big issue for the project. Fortunately, I'm pretty sure most developers don't feel that way.

Having used IE6 and then trying Netscape 6.2, the difference in quality *FEEL* in some areas is quite noticable to Netscape's disadvantage. If your attitude is "It's bearable", I'm sure you disagree. Trust me tho, for most people, it's not bearable if they have an alternative.
