Anyone else feel the same way sometimes?

As a user I took a lot of things for granted, but as someone learning web development it becomes clear just how differently browsers handle things that should be similar.

Like how Firefox doesn’t support custom CSS scrollbars so an external jQuery plug-in has to be used
Or how Safari/iOS makes a background super blurry if you use background-attachment: fixed
Or how Firefox scrolls the HTML instead of the body
Or how Firefox desktop returns the wrong value for jQuery.position()/offset() yet Firefox mobile returns the correct value

I’m not mad, but geez, what the heck

Then again I guess that just means more job listings for front end developers

You got that right.
Firefox is way better than IE though. IE is the thorn on our sides.
