IE: the bane of our existence

A friend from work passed this one along to me.

Don’t know much about the author but I’m linking to his site from the graphic.

  1. Internet Exploder? Oh yeah, that old dog, I remember now. Graphic looks nice, though. Probably not an Excel job then.

  2. The problem is that Firefox supports CSS too well, so if you code for Firefox then you will definitely run into headaches in other browsers that don’t understand CSS quite as well.

    On the flip side, if you code for Internet Explorer, most of the CSS that it supports is also supported by the newer, up-to-date browsers such as Firefox.

    Moral of the story:
    Save yourself a bunch of trouble and try coding your pages with Internet Explorer from the get-go… Especially since Internet Explorer is still the most popular web browser.

    If the page displays properly in Internet Explorer, 9 times out of 10, it will usually display properly in a better browser too.

    Just my two cents.

    But then, I’m also one of these old school guys who codes using an odd hybrid mix of tables, divs, spans, and CSS.

  3. Internet Explorer actually isn’t that bad if you’re using conditional comments. It’s Safari that’s a pain because you need to average out the annoyances between it and Mozilla-based browsers.
