It may not entirely be the browser's fault.  True, not all browsers are 
created equal.  However, it may be that MySpace just doesn't write code 
that follows the rules.  They are SO at fault at cocking up their login 
page with trackware, spyware, and videos for the weekend's upcoming 
movies/TV show release, that my computer locks up and I have to reboot.  
Why?  MySpace doesn't test their software.  We do.  Win98 is too old for 
them to bother to test before releasing software.  Firefox isn't Windows 
Internet Explorer.  You get the idea.  Exhaustive testing costs money.  
It's less expensive for us to test their software than to do it right up 
front.  I pity anyone on dialup.  THEY aren't even a consideration in 
MySpace's thought processes.  Just a thought...
