There’s nothing worse then having an awesome web-design layout with some sweet CSS code, and other cool stuff, when you preview it in Internet Explorer and disaster strikes. Internet Explorer never displays stuff the way you want it to! So I have an idea. There’s a spot called PetitionOnline where you can, well, post petitions online. I wrote one last night. Tell me what you think. Would you sign it, and further the Web Design cause?
We the undersigned hereby announce our wishes to Microsoft Corporation that it update both Mac and Windows verison of Internet Explorer. In its present form, Internet Explorer is nearly incapable of displaying CSS (also known as Cascading Style Sheets) and other new web technologies correctly, which results in frustration from web designers.
Our requirements for this update to Internet Explorer are as follows:
1. That Internet Explorer is made to display CSS and other web content to the caliber of FireFox, or Safari (other web browsers which display things correctly).
2. That Internet Explorer is made more secure, as to help prevent viruses from infecting people’s computers.
This is, in reality, simply a humble request for Microsoft to make it’s emminant web browser actually work. By leaving Internet Explorer on the shelf to gather dust, Microsoft is depriving many of the people on the Internet a good overall experience of the World Wide Web.
Web designers shouldn’t have to dumb down their design or creativity on account that most of the people on the internet use a web browser that does not display content correctly. This is frustrating, annoying, and unnaceptable.
