internet browser
« on: September 03, 2004, 07:58:17 AM »
Just changed my browser on my PC to Mozilla Firefox. I would like to say that Mozilla is noticibly faster because it does not have all that Microsoft overhead that Internet Explorer has. Unfortunately,  NEclimbs.com does not view well.

Has anyone else seen this?
Al, have developed your with Mozilla in mind?

Scottie

don't blame you for making the switch. mostly I use Safari on the Mac for similar reasons. just got Mozilla for the PC the other day. I see the problem with the header. are there any other problems you see? I'll try & address them this week.

guys...

I think that I've fixed the little problems with Mozilla and the site. if you find anything else please let me know. you can post here, but it's usually faster to just to blast me a message to al@neclimbs.com. i want to fix any problems ASAP.

FWIW, Mozilla is a MUCH better browser than IE on any machine. it's faster and more secure. it's right up there with Safari on the Mac, which is what I use most often.

you know, there are so many browser configurations out there it's a bear to try & support them all. that said, over the past year I have really tried to make the site independent of all the stuff that ties it to any one browser. i move to CSS for all the formatting and most recently putting most of the content into a database so if I change format the content won't be affected.

a while back I had a long look at sites like Climbing Boulder, Mike K's site, that is all done this way. in fact all the big sites that change content constantly like MSNBC, CNN, NY Times, etc. are all done in this manner. it's crazy to be writing static pages any more. I do a lot of web work for people & I'm working this way on more & more sites, even the little ones.

making this fix was actually pretty trivial and revolved around a smallpiece of code in the header that was from the older system. it figures... thanks for pointing it out to me.

BTW - Mozilla is a great browser and is getting better & better. folks who are using Internet Explorer shoudl seriously consider making a switch. there are versions for Mac & PC. and it's easy to make a change.
