This may be true, I'll grant you that. However, it's also true that MSIE has over 90% of the marketshare in this arena. As a result, it also has 90% of the established tech support built into the fabric of corporate IT spending. So, it's got the luxury of being buggy. If Mozilla is to thrive in the corporate arena and actually compete with MSIE, then it must do things better and stronger for coporations to switch. If not, then Mozilla simply won't thrive....period. There are only 2 states of health in business, thriving or dying, there is no 3rd state. I know it's a hard pill to swallow, but it has to be taken if Mozilla is to live (and thrive) there.
