First Impressions of IE8 Beta 1

March 6, 2008 by Richard

It's pretty buggy.  Lots of stuff coded purely to standards and not to a particular browser isn't rendering correctly.  All in all though, that's expected, this is not the final product, they're still hammering away on some pretty big things.


Satan Needs a New Winter Coat

Temperatures plummeted to new record lows in hell today on the recent news of an about-face to IE8's standards mode default.  If you haven't been living under a rock, I'm talking about the recent news that IE8 will, in fact, by default, act like IE8.


Why I don't bother with em units anymore

March 3, 2008 by Richard

I used to think that "em" units were the bee's knees.  The cat's meow.  The way it should be done.

Then I encountered weird bugs and design glitches and spent hours trying to figure out how to fix them. IE 5.5 was a real bear to whip into submission. IE 6.0 has some trouble with em units too.
