True, but it's still widely used and has more support than PNG. It's the perennial web designer's nightmare - you hate IE but you have to code for it anyway because everyone uses it. The compromise between what should be done and what has to be done. In the same way, PNG is not as widely and well-supported as it should be, at least in IE.
Sort of true but things will never change if everyone thinks and acts this way. Only if you web-designers start to write spec-compliant pages and use the proper formats, only then will the browsers be fixed to render these pages correctly.
Go a step further. When you identify a browser that does not support current standards (typically, IE), let the user know, either with a popup or such. How many times have you seen similar messages telling you, you MUST use IE for a particular website?
