You need developers who are willing to write and create compelling content without using kludges to support other browsers.

In other words, you need developers to write HTML/CSS/DOM that is 100% standards compliant. Put a link to download Mozilla on the page and state that it'll be needed to view the site as it was intended.

That seems to be the way Netscape flourished and got users to upgrade until IE3/4 came along in the major OS.

Unfortunately, I don't see this happening, even in controlled environments like corporate Intranets.
