Thank you JBB, but...
Well you got it backwards. UX talk was about not making the mistake and start your web page dev from the designer's view: pretty pictures, rounded corners, funky shades, coded effects.
It was about starting your web page dev from the very basic semantics aspect, relying on just what basic html is about: content wrapped in proper tags linked by anchors. All this keeping in mind two aspects: visual aspect is just a possible scenario you need to account for, images have also to be content, otherwise they have no place in HTML but in CSS.
Then, if you are a good web dev, you will understand to provide progressive enhancement and graceful degradation of your web page, exactly for the reasons you mentioned:The average internet surfer uses whatever browser came with their computer. (They don't know or care that others are available.) and they never touch preferences.
It it certainly NOT a big waste of time, once you manage to see the bigger picture
