Indeed. The Mozilla folks have actually discouraged that, because it sounds like the site needed to be written specifically for Firefox. Better to instead have a "Get Firefox" button, or say something like "Best viewed with a standards-compliant browser", or both.

Everyone should use it, because my pages are best viewed with a standards-compliant browser.

Is it ok now? :)

To previous poster: <http://www.anybrowser.org>

as for firefox buttons, google 'em or visit firefox help on your links bar.

Unfortunately, our site is best viewed in Mozilla-based browsers too.

Why?

Because we use 'almost-standards mode' which is not supported by IE 6, and Opera has some bugs to iron out. (They've been confirmed, and their working on them.) IE ignores the doctype anyway, so it's not like "not supporting" is the right word. We also support Safari and Konqueror by using almost-standards mode.

Comments on that?

Congratulations on a well deserved award. Mozilla Firefox is clearly the best of the show to me. :-)

Firefox is the best opensource solution, optimal in connection with Linux!
