I am just venting my frustration.
When I design a website, every browser looks a bit differently, I design mostly on Safari and Google Chrome, looks perfect but when I look at my design in Fire Fox and Opera, there are always some minor details on the layout in CSS to make it look like $**t. Especially he gosh darn different versions of IEs, each version of IE has its bugs.
My question is just how many browsers does the world need? Why can't there be one browser that sticks with one standard in stead of so many "standards"?
I can't help to say WTF!!

I like how there is a consensus for IE sucking.
This is the thing that got me out of web development and into general software development. I'm sick of designing around how these stupid browsers interpret the CSS. Even when I use the yahoo RESET CSS, they still don't agree!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
Infact, if someone asks for a webpage type application, I will tell them "fine, but it will only work in one browser, you can pick which one you want it to work in, but I'm only going to support one browser. If it happens to work in another browser, that's not really intended... I will only be testing it with the one you pick. I will even put a big disclaimer up about it so that everyone knows.". Which is OK with some people (they are actually glad to have me not spend time on things like CSS) and to other people it sounds like I'm from outer space.
All I know is that this is such a big problem that I literally will not touch it. It is just so unfun, and life is too short.
