Screw you, Internet Explorer

Monday, April 28, 2008
I'd just like to take a moment to give a glare to Internet Explorer. You see, I just recently saw this page rendered under IE and was appalled at how it looked. Being a Mac user, I really only use Safari and Firefox when viewing web pages. When I was putting together the template for this page, I loaded up IE under Parallels, but didn't closely examine how it rendered; I just gave it a quick once-over and said "Yup, it works."

Apparently I was wrong. Apparently, not every browser is terribly standards-compliant. (Yes, I knew this already, I'm just complaining.)

Now, maybe I'm just bitter at Microsoft about Office 2008 and its general uselessness. Or maybe I'm bitter that the web page looked fine in every other browser I tried. Still, when Safari and Firefox render the web page the same (and correctly, I might add) but IE manages to screw it up, I get a little irritated.

So I give them a glare and some harsh language. It won't change anything, but it'll make me feel better. (And yes, I changed the template ever-so-slightly to at least not look like absolute crap under IE - I hope. Let me know if I'm wrong.)
