Should We Discriminate In Favour of Firefox?

An intriguing idea:

And if I ran your site, I'd treat Firefox visitors as a totally different group of people than everyone else. They're a self-selected group of clickers and sneezers and power users.

So, should we be hiving off visitors using Firefox to some enhanced, privileged version?

No, because this becomes coercive to the point of annoyance. Even if I'm inclined to switch to Firefox, encountering reduced code or nag prompts (like Google did for a while) only makes me mad at Firefox.

Firefox earned its market share on superior design, performance, and usability. That's all the persuasion it needs to continue its growth.

I tend to agree, but it was an interesting point, I thought.
