I'll let Eli weigh in with his thinking here. Any help and ideas you  
have would be really great.

Browser support is a huge frustration for client-side developers.  
Older versions of IE really slow down the development process, and  
they're a huge source of roadblocks to innovation.

For the moment, I'm tracking Yahoo!'s A-grade list as a source of  
inspiration for browser support in Fluid. They've got a pretty good  
picture of the overall market share of various browsers, and we've  
found that slowly building support for all the browsers in the grid is  
feasible. Justin Obara, our QA lead, has done a great job of tracking  
our browser support status.
