Primarily, I'm focusing on the scrollbar extension, allowing designers to alter the appearance of page scrollbars in the browser. A reference to these extensions can be found here: http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/workshop/author/css/reference/attributes.asp I know some dev will probably throw this back in my face because the extensions aren't in the W3C spec. My argument is this: Surf around with IE for awhile, and you'll see extensions like these in use all over the web. The scrollbars seem to be particularly popular with web designers. If you want to compete with a browser like IE, you have to give the users what they want to see! Mozilla has great potential, but if you stick so tightly to spec that you deny users these little types of bonuses, they'll go with the more flexible IE every time. Even if you don't want to "copy" Microsoft's features, you need to give the designers some way of achieving the looks they want...locking them into a hard specification won't make many new fans.
