The problem is that the "don't change anything" rule can't start until
you get it right the first time, and browsers in general are still
working on that - along with the standards committees. If you are
using CentOS7 you have the option of adding google chrome which
probably is even worse for the rate of change but at least it is
closely in tune with google sites and across various devices.
