No offense, but in order to say that in all honesty, you must have neglected to try anything useful in CSS2 that was added since CSS1. Attribute selectors, content generation, etc - significant portions of the spec that IE/Win simply neglects, but are among the most powerful portions too!
I would be escatic if Microsoft would get their act together and put out a browser than can compare. I have nothing against MS (I use WinXP more often than my dual-booted SuSE 8.0, and love MS Office), but I have a lot against bad software, such as IE.
It doesn't overly worry me as I use whichever I click on first IE 6, NS 7 or Opera 6, but just find it funny watching prejudice at work.
How is this prejudice? I simply demand a decent web development platform. Mozilla, Opera, and Konqueror all provide one. Even IE's Mac equivalent does. Am I not entitled to complain if IE/Win can't?
I hate IE/Win because it has retarded the future of web design. Maybe IE7 will fix this, or maybe not. But if you've ever tried developing something to powerful
standards, you will realize exactly what the potential of the web is, only to get frustrated by IE/Win basically supporting nothing you just used.
