I use three browsers: IE6, Opera 7, and Firebird 0.7. I generally test everything in each of them, but I'm wondering if there is a browser that I can use to show me how the site will look based on the current standards.

In other words, which browser is fully standards compliant?

Which browser is best for development

good question - I would say Mozilla 1.5 and Mozilla Firebird 0.7 would be top of the heap with Opera 7 just behind. That's my opinion anyway. Have you heard of BrowserCam by the way?... http://www.browsercam.com/

I would say Firebird 0.7 is definitely up on top, and is as far as I know...fully standard complient.

By the way...Netscape is one you might need to check on occasionally also. There are a lot of netscape users out there, however it is a rare occasion that netscape differs from other browsers such as Mozilla.

Is Netscape all that different from Mozilla? I tend to lump Firebird, Mozilla and Netscape into the same pile.

Op7 is no more standard compliant than Mozilla, but
it supports more advanced CSS than Moz. If you want
to experiment with the bleeding edge of CSS it's
definitely Op7.x.

Firebird is MADE by mozilla, barkingpenguin.
As for the mozilla-netscape relation-
back around the time of Netscape 2.0, they USED mozilla for the netscape e-mail.
So I'd say heaping mozilla and netscape is a safe thing to do.

Back around the time of Netscape 2.0, that application wasn't the steaming pile of poo that we know and hate today...

So can anyone tell me what the difference is between Firefox 0.8 and Mozilla 1.5? Seeing as how they are made by the same development groups?
