a wish from a web designer

Posted by joy


I wish that everybody in the world used Firefox. It would make my life much easier.

It displays my markup perfectly! Unlike some other web browser I can think of…

Question: Do any of you have any favorite methods of making a page look similar in Firefox and in IE?

    Simple, use only Firefox…
    If U know the way to use Firefox, explorer.exe(not iexplore.exe) is not necessary either. Execute Firefox from registry, or from taskmgr.exe ;)

    Firefox advertising!? It does not require advertising, it’s the best!

    I think she was hoping for advice which would make her site look correct on *other peoples’* computers.

    Making your page validate is a pretty big step. Using as much CSS as you can is also a good idea.

    Well using a lot of css isn’t a really good idea because IE doesn’t undestand it at all, just displays it wrong or so. The old table way is still very stable.. - just be sure to include http://www.w3junkies.com/toocool/ ;-)

    The “IE7″ library goes a long way in this regard:

    It’s a ton of highly sophisticated javascript that forces IE to understand standards-compliant code. All you have to do is include it in your pages and then code like you would for Firefox. Very cool.

    I wish there was an easy way. I’m a big Firefox fan too.

    Test thing sin both browsers every little stop of the way.
