Browser Love Affair
Usually if you ask me what my browser of preference is, I would say Firefox without a pause, but as of yesterday, Firefox and I are having a bit of a quibble.
You see, I’ve been working on the new super awesome Meet DDA page with all sorts of crazy cool flash and video elements. It was made so that when you roll over the person’s picture, the larger picture pops up and if you click the video button on the person’s picture, a little intro video fades in and starts to play in the little picture area.
Firefox, if you are reading this, I’m not very amused and I don’t understand why you are doing this to me. Internet Explorer understands how it should work and displays it almost perfectly at this stage, and let’s be honest… Internet Explorer is a little slow. I did upgrade to Firefox 3 and maybe this was a problem. Should I have waited a bit until all the undiscovered bugs were ironed out? I couldn’t. Not when it came out armed with a shiny new package of features and a goal of setting a world record for number of times downloaded in one day.
Would trusty Firefox 2 have shown the Flash how I wanted it to? I don’t know, but I do know that at next Saturday’s picnic I will be lovingly spoon feeding some of my delicious chocolate pudding to Internet Explorer, not Firefox.
That jerk can get it’s pudding elsewhere.
