Web Browsers

         IE vs. All the rest.

    I sat down and tested all the web browsers that are installed on my computer. I even tested the Windows XP versions, if and when available . I found that my web page looked very nice in all of them. I did notice that in IEv7 there was a little bit of a quirk. The content of the page was off center. It was in fact off to the left. I did not see this in any other browser I tested with. Even the new IEv8 beta looked better then its predecessor. The Wolf-Spider! Home page is in fact optimized for Firefox (Linux) 2.x or higher. I used a resolution of 1024x768@24bit as the default. If you go higher or lower it might not look quite the same. However I did test my home page in resolutions up to 1280x1024 and saw no trouble, except with IEv7. All the others looked OK. All that being said, I would have to recommend that you use Firefox or one of the others listed on my home page. As for IE, I really don't like it and I think it should only be used if there is a page that must have it to view it correctly. OK, now some of you are reading this and saying to your self “Why doesn't he just change the table and table data cell settings from pixels to percentage?” Well that's exactly what I did and it seems to work just fine. So, remember IEv7 is fussy, it likes percentages better sometimes. If you have any comments or suggestions, feel free to e-mail me joe@wolfspider.biz Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will take the time to check out the other pages on my site.
