You might want to consider a few things. There are many areas that IE is
far more broken then Netscape and many still use Netscape becuase it has
far fewer security exploits then IE does.
IE seems to ignore the entire HTTP/1.1 spec caching directivs. IE can
redraw fast because it does not rehit the web server which is requried by
spec with the headers I have used.
IE ignores mime types in many cases.
IE returns an incorrect HTTP_ACCEPT string in the REQUEST.
As far as rendering goes IE may be better in some areas but as far as
working with them server side IE is a royal pain in the ass and Netscape
works far better.
