Actually, this is one of the best "features" of the MS browsers.  The worst part of web development is having to accommodate people who are still using versions 1 and 2 of Navigator - "crippleware."  The features of the level 4 browsers [vs. level 3 and below] approach the differences between Lynx and the first version of Mosaic.  At some point, as developers, you have to make the hard decision to cut off old technologies;  how many of you still write and/or compile programs that will run on an 8088 or an 80286?  Better still, any TRS-80 UA authors out there?
