I think you mean CSS.
There are HTML rendering differences, but I think at this point they are trivial...
I wish Animats' original comment were viable. Truly, I wish we could enforce stricter standards on the web without X browser losing users.
But you're right.
I really wish they'd bring back XForms. I haven't read the WebForms spec yet--I'm about to go check it out--but XForms was such beautiful, beautiful stuff. Weird at first, sure, but new technologies often are. Once the weird phase was over, XForms was absolute heaven. Shame it never caught on. Shame XHTML never caught on (or at least, never reached critical mass/proper implementation).
I've been browsing for some time with noscript and without flash and I rarely end up with this kind of trouble. On top of that I have the cache, cookies and history cleared upon exit. And I'm not having any sort of trouble of the sort you're describing. I don't mind people criticizing Firefox, but this immature trolling because of your own incompetence is enough to make one slightly annoyed.
Sounds to me like Mozilla made you do quite a bit to achieve your stability.
If only the average user were "competent" enough to install these specific extensions and change all the settings that you did. We should all be as "competent" enough to clean up after Mozilla's oversights to the bugs you were brilliant enough to workaround.
Unless you're Dr. Who, or Doc Brown, or Q...
Time only moves in one direction: forward.
Previous versions of Firefox are still available for single-core users. I'm not an expert on low-level computer architecture, but many others seem to disagree with your sentiments about overhead.
Even if you are right, previous versions already have the single-core field covered. How much longer would you have them cater to an architecture that is only going to become more and more obsolete?
Oh, also, higher profits for microsoft will drive them to innovate.
Are you kidding me?! If higher profits drive innovation at Microsoft, we'd be way ahead of where we are now.
Honestly, in Microsoft's case, I think lower profits is what drives them to innovate. That's when they say, “oh shit, we gotta do something about this.”
