    hmm…there is an issue of interpretation. They break up IE by versions, but they dont break up Firefox by its versions (there are still people out there using 1.0, 1.5, and 2.0..and a few using the RC of v3). If you take that into consideration, 60% of the internet is still using a microsoft browser….

    Oh, you had to go and spoil it … I know, I know … its nice to dream though isn’t it …

    Probably the most important thing to take away from this is that the trends are pointing in the direction of Microsoft Browsers declining in popularity. I wouldn’t find that such a good thing if I wasn’t constantly coding around issues introduced by IE not following standards.

    I’ve even found scenario’s where Visual Studio 2005 was producing web site code that IE couldn’t deal with … THAT is plain ridiculous however you look at it. With the same code Firefox displayed it as per VS …
