Two words: Internet Explorer. I have been working on a website for a friend. It’s not quite ready for primetime, but It’s come a long way in 20 billable hours. So, after a nap because my brain was tired, I decided to test it in Internet Explorer. It didn’t render properly, either in regular mode of “compatibility mode” (It is to laugh). It worked in every other browser I had (Opera, for both Windows and Linux, Firefox, Konqueror, just to name a few) but not in IE. It took me about 25 minutes and lots of creative language to find the tag that was causing IE to malform the page.
Once again another stellar Live show came and went. @DedRyzing, @husker_fan, @jlariviere and more joined us for a great talk about a lot of things. One big subject was Operating Systems and how we always wait for the “Next One”. We had some great websites chuck full of information, too. W3c has a great chart of OS Statistics. During the show we talked about how much storage there is out in the world. We found this site, which has a great footprint ticker. We also talked about Twitter Keywords, Cloud Computing and so much more.
I reported it on Geeknewscentral.com – Opera came out with version 9.5. Now Opera was noted a couple months back for getting 100% of 100% of the ACID3 test. This tests the W3C standards of the browser. Check out the browser update here. Firefox is trying to get a Guiness record of downloads when their new browser comes out next week. Let’s just give Opera a good boost to say “Hey, we have even another good option”. Opera is available for Windows (95 – Vista), Mac OSX and Linux. Download here
