I like the browser view +1, but regarding the poll.  What I believe Ed refers to is the fact that the poll will not make the developers change their minds, although many people would hope that it does, I like browser mode myself and I always change it.  But who knows with these things.

It reminds me of testing.  There is too much testing going on in schools.  School districts benchmarking the kids too much.  In my opinion, the numbers might not mean much, they are just benchmarks.  They just have to pass a Statewide exam and in the end the other numbers were "meaningless".  That in testing, here with respect to the stats collected, some people might just believe why would developers care about what the end users want?, Just like a restaurant where it said:

"This is not Burger King!  You get it my way or you don't get the dammn thing!"  

While it is good in some ways to have these polls, in the end the decision is still left to the developers.  Will they "cave in" to what the users want?  This is the big question here.

My $0.02
