I would like to point out, on the upcoming v5 version of the site, IE6 will totally make the site look broken and you should upgrade as soon as possible to either IE7 or IE8 Beta 2 or use a browser that is not Internet Explorer.

Click on the images for a larger view.

Internet Explorer 6:
../forums/20080907IE6.png

Firefox 3: (What it SHOULD look like)
../forums/20080907Firefox3.png

Opera 9.5
Internet Explorer 8 Beta 2
Google Chrome

IE6 does not support PNG transparency at all, hence the ugly pale blue background around the images. IE7 improves the support, but makes the image darker than it should be. Only IE8 is totally compliant with PNG and CSS standards.

So as the IE6 screenshot says:

Quote: Message
If you are viewing this site on Internet Explorer 7 or under, they are not compliant to either HTML, CSS or PNG standards.

Please consider changing your browser to Firefox 3, Google Chrome Beta, Opera 9, Internet Explorer 8 Beta 2 for the best viewing experience.

Wait, there are people browsing the internets without Firefox + Adblock?

According to Google Analytics, 46.31% of visits in the past month was from an Internet Explorer.

Oh does it now?

That would make sense.

Also, I hope v5 isn't mandatory.

That'd pretty much suck.

I could make it so it's not, but features will be gradually deprecated on v4 as new features are implemented.

Firefox is a liar and liars deserve to die. I was promised decent speed and didn't get it. Surprised

Incidentally, I would later upgrade to IE7, which would be SLOWER than IE6, so I just used SBC Yahoo!. Now, I have a new computer on which IE7 runs smoothly.

There's an IE8! I should be a techno geek again, instead of a stepmania addict.
Anyway, no problems here (firefox 3 + adblock plus). although on the whole layout, I can't help but say that things are a bit too bright (the place where the text should be).

To RoyBoyCF, did you overload firefox with a lot of enhancements and themes. If so, it will slow down in performance and later versions typically use less memory.

When I was just starting with firefox i saw the difference, pages were loading faster, downloads were transferring faster and a whole lot of other features that tickled my fancy so to speak. Even though I still use IE, I'll stick with Firefox.

I was using a friend's computer (which was newer than mine, BTW), so I don't know which add-ons were on there.

You'll know Google Chrome has a major security flaw when your credit card numbers start appearing as recent searches everywhere. I can't find the article on it being a key logger again, but all that stuff would be easily accessable in your computer. Anything you've ever typed.

IE7 is fine CSS wise, so layout isn't a problem. Some images with transparency may appear darker than usual, just be aware of that.
