And I hit an excellent example of that recently. I was writing a webpage in which 70 odd input elements had to be submitted. Mozilla was GETting the result with no problems, but when I switched to Internet Explorer I had a problem. If I typed no text in my form I could submit it. But if I typed text in my form, IE would sit there blankly while I pressed my submit button.
Searched through the internet: discovered that I was constructing a URL in IE that was too long. So changed the method to "POST" and could resume programming, a day later.
So die.. die ungracefully, or error someone.. let the world know that something unexpected happened!
