Internet Explorer "As a team, we've spent the last year heads down working hard on IE8. Last week, we achieved an important milestone that should interest web developers. Internet Explorer 8 now renders the 'Acid2 Face' correctly in IE8 standards mode." Insert freezing and hell joke.

You know there are options in most browsers to over-ride fonts and colors of text.

The point is, that sites are "designed" ie they are made too "look" a certain way. Much like a picture. You don't go to the Museum with a bucket of finger paints to make every picture look the way you want it to... This is not a freedom of choice issue, the user has the freedom to choose not to ever return to that site or even look at it. As a designer it is "MY" choice on how that site looks and if "I" make bad choices and no one wants to look at it performs like crap on other people's machines, then that is on "ME".

See how that works? Your choice to or not to visit the site, My choice, how it looks because I made it.
