[HIG] mozilla accesibility in ars technia

"Most of Navigator's looks are defined with "skins" and skin developers
have quite a bit of control over how the browser looks. Unfortunately,
this comes at the expense of the end user options. Toolbars, colors, and
icon sizes are all fixed by the skin developer. For people used to the
customization options of IE windows, it's a step backwards in
functionality. For people who need better accessibility tools, it's a
disaster. The disregard for accessibility in the user interface is
shocking given the amount of work that went into implementing web

Its good to see some press given to Mozilla's lack of accesibility.
Hopefully public commentary like that will turn up the heat on
developers to make it work (and also hopefully convince them to nix the
horrible non-native widgets :-)
