The little things that make a difference
For too long now, the overall browser of choice has been Internet Explorer. So for many years, we have done website programming and testing primarily on that particular platform, finding that has to be 100% correct and complete, and if it doesn’t really work as well in the other browsers, that it’s ok, we can live with 4% of the people not seeing the page exactly the same. Now I’ve been around the web since the beginning days of the browser wars, back when Netscape Gold was a modern marvel that my computer at the time couldn’t run. Since then I’ve seen many browsers come and go, and the big names that are sticking around are of course IE, FireFox, Safari and Opera, and they all work a little differently. I’ve been a fan of FireFox since before 1.0, and will continue to be, as long as someone keeps putting out little things that make me happy.
