If you have a choice between a dog of a browser that doesn't work with 
pixel-sized fonts, found in real-world sites, and a newer browser that 
does (*and* has tabbed browsing, popup blocking, better standards 
compliance, and the like), why would you go with the dog?

Now, if you *don't* have a choice, that's *different*. Let's just stop 
pretending that the Web equals IE for Windows.
